Hard Work

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

We recently visited our local garden centre which as usual is getting ready for Christmas. A sea of glittery tat gradually taking shape where not so long ago it was outdoor furniture, barbecue hardware and even some gardening sundries.

Not only that, but on the way to Norfolk we stopped off at another garden centre for a break and a coffee and they were at it too. Another sea of glittery tat in the construction stage and to my eye, much of it was the same glittery tat. No doubt from the same Chinese container ship.

There is nothing quite like Christmas for plunging the knife into consumer society. If it wasn’t for the risk of making common cause with environmental nutters, it would be easy to take seriously the notion that Something Must Be Done.

Before Christmas, we have totally ghastly Halloween of course. Then Guy Fawkes Night or whatever we choose to call it. Then after Christmas we have New Year. 

At this time of year, not becoming a puritan is really hard work. Maybe this year will be different, maybe people will cut back on the tat, but it’s not something I’d bet on.
