I cant say I observed Buy Nothing Day strictly on purpose, I didn't, I purchased gas on my way home from my parents house. But I have no desire to squelch my own Christmas Spirit by going out at an obscene hour to be shoved and glared at by other shoppers who are possitive that if I pick up what they are eyeing it will undoubtedly ruin their holidays. We stayed in watched the Santa Parade. Then we went to the indoor pool. And we finished the day with a movie. It was fabulous.
