LETTER: Trouble in aisle 5, still no hint of Christmas

LETTER TO EDITOR: It is a sad fact but undeniably true that our supermarkets are failing their followers.

Easter is over.

Even the holy icons of the festival - the chocolate bunnies, bilbies and hot cross buns - have been sacrificed to the god Mammon at greatly reduced prices.

But there is still no hint of Christmas.

Where are the sale signs, the Christmas trees, the gift wrapping paper? How can we, the faithful, know when our sacred times are near?

Please, supermarkets, inform us soon before it is too late and we are totally unprepared to give our tithe to your cash registers.

- Frederick F. Archer, Bundaberg
