Black Friday has become such a big to-do, that Thanksgiving is apparently now called White Thursday. (Seriously, it’s for “early birds.”)
Many adhere to Buy Nothing Day, and make a bold statement to stand against the insane consumer frenzy that has taken over the day after Thanksgiving.
Me? I am neither going to shop nor anti-shop, (is that a valid verb?) but instead am going to spend the day enjoying my kids home from school, and enjoy what the day after Thanksgiving should be focused on, which is:
The best leftovers day of the year!
And yes, there will be pie for breakfast.
“Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without.”
P.S. I will be on KQED radio from 9:00 A.M. – 10:00 A.M. talking about alternatives to cray-zay Black Friday fever. You can listen to a live stream HERE, and even call in if the mood strikes. Bonus points if you can make me swear. 😉
