IT'S not even New Year's Day - but Tesco is already filling its shelves with Easter eggs.

Christmas trees are still 'up' in many homes, twinkling lights flash on and off. Wheelie bins full of Christmas Wrappers and turkey bones wait curbside and yet here come the chocolate bunnies.

It appears the greedy companies can't wait, even beating the Valentines Day shoppers. Oh no! The Valentine's Day chocolates were on the shelves in November. We missed them.

Easter in December, ridiculous. There ought to be a law against it. Baby Jesus is not yet 'weaned' and now they're getting ready to crucify him.

Personally I hate all of the commercialism which has sprung up around these holidays. It's all about money and I refuse to buy into it.

Valentine's Day cards for your dog, your teacher, your grandmother for crying out loud.

Isn't the idea to send a card to your sweetheart? The world's gone mad.

I think we should just choose ONE day and celebrate all of the holidays at once and get them over and done with.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
