Nowadays, Good Friday is a much more palatable affair. Not only is it a national holiday, but we get to eat hot cross buns. Plus we also get to watch Ben-Hur on television.
The holiday period reaches it's climax with Easter Sunday. We celebrate this day with rabbit and chicken imagery, and the salad dodgers' favourites, chocolate eggs.
Unfortunately, there are always villains eager to take advantage of the festivities to satisfy their own evil ends. It has come to my attention, that throughout the period of Lent, catholic priests wear vestments of the same colour as Cadbury Dairy Milk wrappers. A colour easily identified with chocolate to any child in the country. Hence the grooming begins.
Catholic priests, fluffy bunnies and chocolate. Some naïve fat catholic boys might soon find lettuce slightly more appealing in the days to come.
