buy nothing day

From “Buy Nothing Day”

July 22, 2011

Dear DMC,

Here in Canada we have a day called ‘Buy Nothing Day’  on which one is supposed to, well, buy nothing.

I am proposing to the Federal government a national ‘Do Nothing Day’ which oughta be self-explanatory, and perhaps our Prime Minister and your President could meet over a beer (Molson’s or Bud, nothing exciting) and make it one of those bi-national holidays, like Christmas.
