Buy nothing day: Did you do it?

This is old but was interesting non the less.
Adbusters couldn't resist asking everyone to take Black Friday off and send a message. Did you get it?

"We want you to not only stop buying for 24 hours, but to shut off your lights, televisions and other nonessential appliances. We want you to park your car, turn off your phones and log off of your computer for the day.

"We’re calling for a Ramadan-like fast. From sunrise to sunset we’ll abstain en masse, not only from holiday shopping, but from all the temptations of our five-planet lifestyles."
