THERE once was a time when the build-up to Christmas began in December and Easter Eggs were a once-a-year treat. Nowadays, however, nothing stands in the way of commercial forces.
August is barely out before shops and stores begin to stock festive fare. And now, with October still not over, Cadburys has announced details of its new Easter range. Tubs of Creme Eggs and Mini Eggs will be available from early in the New Year.
Reaction to the news has varied from ‘yum yum’ to ‘all these goodies will be available year round and nothing will be special any more’. Discuss!
