Friday, November 26, 2004A Friendly Reminder
Yeah, I know it's an empty, symbolic gesture that makes no significant difference in the real world... but symbols are still worth something.
PS: Anyway, I don't recommend this so much because it "makes a difference" (let's be honest, it doesn't), but because I think it's a good idea to take a conscious day off from fevered consumer excess. It's good to have a day to notice all the stuff you'd normally be buying, and to think about what you really need and what you don't. |
