BUY NOTHING DAY
Here at Waldorf Publications we have established an annual event on the day after Thanksgiving: a day in which we enjoy the warmth of the day-after-Thanksgiving with family and friends. We invite you to join us and buy nothing. To balance the energy pushed upon us by the commercial world and simply “Buy Nothing” we can all take a day to breathe out and prepare for the coming winter. We invite you to join us in this by being creative if you feel so drawn.
“Buy Nothing Day” was established in 2013 and this marks our third annual “Buy Nothing Day.”
This year, our inventive Library Lady has identified the making of an Advent spiral and walnut candles as the crafts of the day. She is sending you the light of the heavens on the stepping-stone path to the re-awakening of the Sun as it turns towards increasing light at Solstice, Chanukah, and Christmas. Light up your home with candlelight until the time of increasing sunlight returns!
Waldorf Publications, the Library Lady, and the whole staff wish you and your friends and families a celebratory Thanksgiving, and a peaceful and creative day after!
The grace that we can sing says it all:
For food in a world where many walk in hunger;
For love in a world where many walk in fear;
For friends in a world where many walk alone,
We give the humble thanks, Oh Lord!
