Reverend Billy and nearly 200 other non-shoppers celebrated Buy Nothing Day in Midtown on the day after Thanksgiving, traditionally the busiest shopping day of the year. One participant reported on the NYC Indymedia newswire that “Children loved our costumes, and were despondent that our patriot star spangled get-ups were not for sale in the store. Parents were overheard saying, “They want peace for Christmas!” to which children responded, “I do too!” PHOTO: CAITLIN BENEDETTO
