For the beginning of the holiday season, most Quakers do just about nothing. The idea is that every day is just as holy as the next, so making a big fuss about one day seems a bit sacrilegious. The idea of an entire season dedicated to holidays is kind of ridiculous. And then there is Black Friday, a special day dedicated entirely to shopping and consumerism. This departs sharply from Quaker testimonies of simplicity and the more recent focus on sustainability. So as a Friend, I have some suggestions for what to do instead.
