Somewhat ironically, the best thing to do in a recession (from a macroeconomic perspective, at least) is spend spend spend.
So it’s with that in mind that a friend of mine has started a new Facebook group — Second Christmas (you’ll probably need a Facebook account to access).
2nd Christmas is January 20th, 2009, which is also Inauguration Day for President-elect Barack Obama.
2nd Christmas was created in the spirit of renewed hope and optimism for a country, and a world, devastated by the last eight years of negligent and inept leadership.
It is our sincere hope that a positive outlook and real, progressive change will spread starting with the inauguration of President-elect Barack Obama on January 20th, 2009.
To encourage the start of this renewed growth and return to a equitable and prosperous future, we suggest our own stimulus plan in the form of…2nd Christmas!
