Beautiful December

Now, when the garden awaits the return of spring
Now, when the silence is deep and blue
Now, when the winter has cast her spell again
Beautiful December, Beautiful December

Here, where the snow is as soft as a woolly lamb
Here, where the nightfall is deep and blue,
Here, where the stars are so bright, you reach for them
Beautiful December, Beautiful December

Child, may you sleep in gentle peace tonight
Dream of songs that rise on silken wings!
When you wake, enchanted by the snowspun light
Sing the songs that came to you in dreams,
Your beautiful December dreams

You've probably heard of inflation, which in economics describes the general increase in prices and fall in the purchasing value of money, well in economics, shrinkflation is the process of items shrinking in size or quantity while their prices remain the same.

    I assume they won't do this for drugs.

    I've noticed that the size of Snicker and Mars bars have reduced but they're still the same price. Also in India, instead of 250cl bottles of soft drinks, they come in smaller 200cl sizes. These as cheaper than the larger bottles, but not significantly less.

    It would be interesting for me if they could "shrink" the portion of a dish in the restaurant.
    Mostly they are too much for me.
    However, I won't pay the same price!
