We had a nice time at our first Buy-Nothing Day event. It was a great opportunity to meet with friends old and new. We visited, ate snacks, and exchanged things from our lives that we wanted to gift. It felt like a cross between a silent auction and Christmas morning as the gifts were given to those that wanted them most. We are looking forward to doing this again down the road since it was a nice opportunity to step outside of the consumerist aspect of the holiday gift-giving season.
