I’m still confused at the notion of giving presents for Easter. When did this start? It certainly wasn’t a thing when I was a kid.
yeah! and along came climax capitalism. inflection point perhaps somewhere twixt valentine’s day becoming “gotta buy some hallmark cards” to “grandparents day”. (“More naturally holidays should be ranked by kilograms crappy chocolate per capita” so no love for candy corn at all?)
Yeah back in my day nobody gave us eggs. We had to go out and search for painted eggs the hard way, crawling through the snow, both ways!
I’m in my mid fifties and always got a basket when young. Usually just candy, but occasionally a stuffed animal
It’s all a scheme by Big Present
I mentioned recently in another topic that I worked temp off-and-on in a toy warehouse for a few years. It seems that any and all holidays are gift-giving occasions now. One that especially surprised me was that Mother’s Day was one of their busiest times of the year. When I was a kid you gave a card or a gift to your mother—it was her day; no one else received gifts on Mother’s Day.
Once I cot a chocolate egg without the surprise insde, but a chocholate clock outside. The chocolate clock was a cheap quartz clock that run on a 1,5 V AA cell and was dark chocolate brown, milk chocloate brown, and white chocolate white. Maybe no the most classy gift, but useful as bathroom clock.
