Adbusters the anti-consumerist organization.
Vox Nova asserts that so-called "Black Friday" is a perverse inversion of the Christian "Good Friday" and that the secular "religion", "Mammon" has taken over Christian holidays for its own purpose--to try to convince Christians to worship on its altar of consumerism.
This saving money that is supposed to occur en masse on this day, is, Vox Nova purports, a kind of "fast" or "vigil" of Thanksgiving--the celebration of gluttony, and, I think, for Christmas, which has become, in a secular sense, a continuation of the gluttony of "Turkey Day" writ large--a month long "feast" of "I get what I want".
What are "the holidays" to you? What can we as Christian people do to preserve the holy meaning of "holy days"?
