except for yom kippur, which was the centerpiece of this article precisely for this reason, holidays are normally a time of greater consumption, not less. ideally, shabbat and holiday meals are especially plentiful. and one ceases shopping and driving precisely because one spends so much time doing those things for the majority of one's life. this doesn't mean that the elevation of rest to holy status is not admirable. but environmentalism ought to be about a permanent structural change in global patterns of production and consumption. anything less is, from a policy point of view, vanity.
