The Yuletide festival project or Buy Nothing Yuletide is a grass roots initiative taking place in 2007 directed at curbing both counter-cultural apathy and wasteful traditions that accompany the winter holidays. Rather than making a singular gesture against holiday consumerism in the manner of Buy Nothing Day or attempting to secure a religious foundation as in Buy nothing Christmas this festival acts as an experiment to seek out or test the possibility of a sustainable, green, non commercial winter holiday tradition that is cross culturally inclusive.

Yuletide, The Twelve Days of Yule: A non-commercial or "freegan" Winter festival of traditions celebrating old, new, disorder and harmony that acts as a challenge to those who choose to participate. Generally the festival can span between Dec 20th and January 1st, approximately from the longest night to New Year's Day, which is about 12 nights, bridging the solar and Gregorian new year. There is a potential timetable composed of a fusion of historical world traditions, but there are no rules. It is up to each community to decide the best way to celebrate each day.
