|It's White Friday out there today.|
It's White Friday here on the mountain, and wild horses pulling a sleigh-of-plenty couldn't drag me away from my warm and toasty home. Today Linda and I join the 3% of North Americans (or 91% of NBA readers) that will buck the trend and stay home on this most sacred of consumer holidays.
On this day the NBA commercial-free lifeboat floats tranquilly in a quiet corner of the Sea of Consumerism, proving that 'irresistible' deals are in fact quite resistible. We are not buying anything, which is not unusual, but it feels even better on a day like today.
It's White Friday and I am saving 100%. Plus I am not risking life and limb in a car accident on the way to spend money, or worse, in a frenzied stampede of crazed consumers competing for the latest hot deals.
Today is a perfect day to stay home. To celebrate the richness of home life. The simple life. The contented life.
|Here is where you will find us on White Friday - right at home next to our wood stove.|
We hope you are having a good White Friday, and proceed right on to a great weekend.
Stay warm. Stay strong.
