Snopes claims Nov 25 is not the biggest shopping day of the year.

When I first moved away to college, I found a copy of Adbusters in a bookstore and I thought it was one of the most amazing things ever. Eventually I decided it was too smug even for me.

This author has a lot of the same thoughts I did:

I think the magazines Vice and Colors were targeted at the same market as Adbusters, but had a much greater impact.


I feel like this movement would be more noticeable and eventually disruptive if it were... I don't know? Any other day of the year!
