Bah! Humbug! Mr Warren Sir! Bah! Humbug!
I can't agree with you more!
This is a typical year here in the U.K.
Let's start at the beginning of the year in January, just as we have thrown out the Christmas tree that looks like it's has a severe case of alopecia due the number of times it has fallen over, you have fallen over it, and everyone one has fallen over it singing Auld Lang Syne at New Years Eve.
Even the dog has ****** it's leg and piddled on it!
What do we have on the shelves?
Yep! We have Easter eggs!
As far as the eye's can see we have them on isles, on posters. on telly.
You find yourself singing Can't Resist Them, Cadbury's Creme Eggs to yourself.
And you ask the kids what is Easter is all about, and in this Country, they will say Easter Eggs and Disney, and endless James Bond movies and then quiz them more and they will say "Oh I forgot, Jesus died didn't he".
Now here comes Summer, and you go to the local supermarket, in your shorts and T shirt in the heat in July and August, you are buying barbecue goods along side Christmas joy and myrrh it may be 80c outside but the store is showing early stages of Christmas decay with Ho! Ho! Ho! Father Christmas toys, and you look at them and think if you don't think about they may, and I mean may go away, and my stupidity and naivety always get the best of me and it before you know it your supermarket looks like one big massive Santa's Grotto and the shop assistants look and feel stupid in there little green elves outfit.
And you you get Christmas over with, you sit there semi drunk with your trousers button undone with a paper hat just hanging on your head, wishing your in-laws would just go!
And one minute passed 7pm in the evening what do you get.
The TV says right you drunken lot, Christmas is over!
I am going to bombard you with adverts of Holidays, January Sales, Sofa adverts, Holidays, furniture adverts, Holidays, get a new car, Holidays, carpet adverts.
And I forgot, did I mention Holiday adverts.
