This is the weird thought I had the other day. From September ist to December 24th we get ready for Christmas. From December 26th to mid-April-ish depending on the moon we get ready for Easter. But we have nothing to get ready for between April and September 1st. We have no special holiday with presents and food. I think we need another holiday / excuse to buy presents or chocolate / excuse to have a few days off to do nothing but watch TV, argue, eat and sleep.
I suppose we could big-up Hallowe’en for want of anything in August or September to celebrate. Hallowe’en isn’t much o f an event and the government hasn’t yet granted us the day off nor do we generally give presents. I think we should. I suggest we have a day off and give each other chocolate pumpkins.
