Happy Free Shipping Day

1355756800461

I sometimes like to look at lists of random pseudoholidays, and I happened to notice that Dec. 17 is Free Shipping Day. This seems to be more of a real thing than tomorrow's scheduled Answer the Telephone Like Buddy the Elf Day, with a Free Shipping Day website and everything.

Basically a whole bunch of retailers are offering coordinated free shipping promotions, just in time for your last-minute holiday shopping needs. So go forth and buy.
