Fat Day

Thanksgiving falls on a Thursday and Friday is Black Friday, a day of retail sales excessive commercialism and repulsive levels of materialism. Some years Buy Nothing Day falls on the same day but this year they've scheduled it for Saturday which is sort of beside the point. On Friday November 29th I celebrate Fat day.

The celebration of Fat Day is either the act of being laconic all day after eating too much on Thanksgiving or being very active and trying to atone for eating too much on Thanksgiving. Either way it acknowledges that we all are fatter Friday than were were the day before.
