Buy Nothing Day

Today is Buy Nothing Day.  People can make gifts or exchange favors.

I got curious about how the Finns would celebrate this.  Naturally they pile together and MAKE ALL THE THINGS!  A kitchen full of Finns.  A workshop full of Finns.  A makerspace full of Finns and many other people with a "Need a Thingie? Take a Thingie! Free Swap Meet" in the multipurpose room.  :D  So. Much. Win.  (Unless you are the patent lawyer who has to figure out the results on Monday.)

A graffiti banner urges people to make things instead of buying things.
