Did you know that there is another “holiday season” approaching?
I know this because a weekend flyer from a local grocery store mentions it several times. It was a little puzzling, at first, because it’s March. The only “holiday season” (and I shudder every time I see this term) I had been aware of was the holiday formerly known as Christmas.
After reviewing the items on offer, I’m guessing this new generic holiday is actually Easter since wouldn’t ham rule out the holiday meaning Passover? Probably the writer(s) wanted to be inclusive. Nothing wrong with that, I suppose, but can’t we just be specific instead of using the watered-down “holiday”?
