chocolate holidays

This thought is brought to you by one of Jodie’s professors, about the various religious and meaningful holidays turned into chocolate holidays.

Christmas: we celebrate the birth of chocolate.
Valentines Day: celebration of the love of chocolate.
Thanksgiving: give thanks for chocolate
Easter: celebrate the rebirth of chocolate after giving it up for forty days

I don’t wish to turn this into a conspiracy theory, but there’s a very ugly trend to turn all holidays into one of consumerism, buying everything in sight in the name of gift giving, and taking out the meaning of it all. This is nothing new, but overhearing someone talking about how much they spent on Easter gifts made me ill.
