Minimalist holidays

To me the baroque, over-the-top aesthetic of the holidays are stand-ins for consumptive overdrive of the season.

So naturally, these two minimalist holiday projects make a nice metaphor: the Hanukit by Israeli design team Reddish and a pixelated Christmas tree poster. If you want a holiday that's simple in ways other than aesthetic, here's my annual plug for Buy Nothing Christmas, plus links to a The Nation's guide to a socially responsible holiday and Ethiquette's responsible shopping guide.
