Happy Fur-Free Friday!

Published by PETA.

Thanksgiving is over and everyone is getting in the wintery, “Christmassy” spirit … but hey, don’t forget about my favorite holiday of the year! Fur-Free Friday! While most people are hittin’ the shops at 4 a.m. to dig through bargain bins and trample their neighbors to grab those $5 iPods, animal activists are going out of their way to remind holiday sale shoppers not to include fur on their shopping lists this year (or any year, for that matter).

We’re working hard today to tell mallgoers that cruel, furry designers like Donna Karan are so out and that awesome, fur-free designers like Stella McCartney are so in.

Since I’m feeling extra faux happy today, I’d like to share with you some pictures of anti-fur street demonstrations from around the globe to get you in the Fur-Free Friday spirit. Enjoy and have a wonderful, safe, and cruelty-free holiday:
