The seasons are inter-twining
Does this happen in your area ?
Our supermarkets were closed on Monday and Tuesday Dec. 26th and 27th
as make-up holiday's for Christmas Day, when they reopened on Wednesday
28th they all featured “Hot Cross Buns” also known here as “Easter Buns.”
(but let’s not go there.)
Now I’ve not yet looked up the dates for Easter this year, but I’m pretty
certain it’s not in Jan. or Feb. so why the unholy, (no pun intended) rush to
get these into the stores ?
It was bad enough that the Christmas decorations/cards/music started in
Oct. but surely we don’t need to be inundated with the commercial side of
these two seasons for half of the year, (October to April, do the math,)
My other reason for sounding off about this is that I LOVE hot cross buns,
and my generous frame doesn’t need 3 or 4 months of supply of a known
fattening agent to help it out !!!
PS..... I've had a question which surprised me a little as to, what are
"Hot Cross Buns", these are a sweet yeast bun usually with mixed fruit,
they are glazed on top and have two thin beads of white dough laid accross
them in the form of a cross, they symbolize the crucifiction cross as a part
of the Easter story.
While I am very much against the “serious side” of political correctness,
I really appreciate the funny stuff that it generates, (how’s that for an
each way bet ?)
