Family Day

In Nevada, the Friday after Thanksgiving is Family Day, a day to eat supper with your children.  This official state holiday was promoted by the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University.  They note that "frequent family dining is associated with lower rates of teen smoking, drinking, illegal drug use and prescription drug abuse".  I have added Family Day to my list of Optihumanist Holidays.

That sounds a lot better than either Black Friday or Buy Nothing Day, for the day after Thanksgiving.
