My “Black Friday” Shopping List:

Another turkey; we nearly ate the entire bird from yesterday. And some butter.

As for that perennial pastime where greed perverts Advent, making it the season of goading sheeple into buying crap they don’t need, all while avarice and coercion fuels the fire of abuses heaped upon low-income workers, I will buy nothing.

God willing, I will buy nothing or as close to nothing as possible through the weekend, and (largely due to my tendency to avoid spending money until the last minute) past “Cyber Monday”.

And I will point out that these brief momentary opportunities to rest and take some time to be with family are priceless and scarce. Solidarity suggests that we not consume in ways that deprive others of the same enjoyment.
