Guilt-Free Christmas

Not that it's possible with all the Catholicism in my family, but here are some things to avoid purchasing in this year's consumerist orgy.

Beluga caviar, crocodile skin, ivory, and other grisly animal remains...



And pretty much anything made in China.

It's more than a little sad when you think of what Christmas is supposed to represent, theoretically anyway, and the destruction all the crap we buy wreaks on the environment and our fellow man. Look folks, there's a reason the 'West' is so much better off than the rest of the world. Because we (and by that I mean you and me, all of us) exploit the fuck out of them.

If we all try our hardest not to be greedy pigs, then maybe we can make the world a teensy bit better this Christmas instead of making it worse.
