Skywatch Friday ~ Blue Friday


Today is known in U.S. commercial culture as Black Friday. It’s the big Xmas sales day after Thanksgiving when all of the retailers hope to get their balance books back in the black.

But it is also Buy Nothing Day, a day dedicated to resisting crass commercialism and the zombifying dictates of Madison Avenue.

I’m just going to call it Blue Friday, after the beautiful blue sky I saw over my woods in the Ozarks.

    Love your beautiful blue skies! We actually have some here in Seattle today — one of the few this month. And it’s definitely Buy Nothing Day in this house! Besides, with skies like these, who wants to be inside a store fighting crowds????

    Enjoy your weekend!

    You have very pretty blue skies there.
    I do not like fighting crowds ever something I can get any other day. I did take my son to the tropical fish store.

    I was with you in spirit, this past Black Friday. I didn’t shop one little bit. I waited until Saturday and then just bought what I had to. Missouri does have the prettiest blue skies!
