We are being Americanised
WHY must we give in to the ever-growing Americanisation of our traditions and terminology?
It’s bad enough that Halloween has become such a commercial “circus” event, but now the ever-increasing use of the term “the holidays” seems to be replacing our more usual “Christmas time”.
Regarding the Evening Post’s recent front page picture and page 14 article regarding a fizzy drink truck’s arrival in Swansea, I was never aware that November 21 was the start of any kind of “holiday”.
And when did we ever need to be told “officially” that Christmas was coming ?
Christmas happens naturally.
It just turns up around December 24, so for the sake of the man it’s all supposed to be about stop ramming it down our throats and “selling it” to us.
