National Day of Listening

If you, like me, prefer to avoid Black Friday you’ll be happy to know that today is the National Day of Listening in the US (and there’s no reason not to do it everywhere else). From it’s website:

On the day after Thanksgiving, set aside one hour to record a conversation with someone important to you. You can interview anyone you choose: an older relative, a friend, a teacher, or someone from the neighborhood.

Make a yearly tradition of listening to and preserving a loved one’s story. The stories you collect will become treasured keepsakes that grow more valuable with each passing generation.

The website even has a question generator and guides for the recording, if you need help.
