I Stayed Home and Did What I Wanted.
I have been writing about Curmudgeon Day for the last 8 years, which posts you can find in the Curmudgeon Day category. The holiday itself is much older (predating the pretenders), but it has taken on additional significance this year. This Thanksgiving was the first time one of our guests had to leave early to go into work at a retail outlet, for a midnight opening, under the implied threat of dismissal, making this particular practice a form of quasi-slavery, which must become unprofitable.
Now, I encourage you to join the cause by visiting and liking the Curmudgeon Day page on Facebook. If you are so inclined, please also post there about your non-shopping activities; I have already done so.
