It’s that rip off time of year again, only a matter of weeks has passed since the last swizz that was Valentine’s Day. Now it’s Mother’s Day! Oh yes, people rushing to buy overpriced crappy cards to make some kind of effort to show their mother that they are important! Oh and don’t the supermarkets and shops love it, of course now it’s passed its up and over the trenches for the campaign that is Easter!
Don’t get me wrong, as a non-Religous person I can’t see what shoving your face full of overpriced chocolate that would cost less in a bar than it is shaped as an egg with an enormous vacuous space in the middle, but that is made up for by the completely over the top packaging!
After Easter of course there’s a bit of a lull before Father’s Day. We dont really celebrate days such as St.Georges Day anymore, because it offends the multi cultural society we live. Balls to that I say! I wouldn’t instil my beliefs and ways into another country, and wouldn’t be offended if they shut up shop because it was some religious holiday, so why should we?
