A topical story

LynneLynne TeachHomePosts: 9,840 mod
Tesco's has caused a real ---- storm over a recent advert for beer and cider. Why?

The advert, which appeared in several newspapers to promote "great offers on beer and cider" in the run-up to Easter said, "Good Friday just got better".

They have pulled the ad, and apologised for any offence caused.

This Easter is proving somewhat controversial as Cadbury and the National Trust were recently criticised for dropping the word Easter from their organised egg hunts.

Sorry guys you can't ignore the word Easter, otherwise we will end up with "The Bunny".

    It looks like Tesco lost the plot @Lynne. I wonder how many people these days don't even really know what Easter is about. It's a big deal in many countries still though. I still can't work out how in the UK there's a public holiday on the Friday but not in Catholic countries. They only get Monday off.

    I don't know. Good Friday and Christmas Day have been public holidays in the UK since before records began. I guess the banks didn't dare mess with it.
