Black Friday, a large rhubarb of silly proportions and a new terminology to us rural Greek folk. Apparently it’s when people in the U.S and now spread to the U.K. stampede and maul each other in hordes to acquire something on the first day of Xmas sales. THE day after they pledged to being thankful for all they have. Now we know why it is called Black Friday!!
So in the blatant interest of self promotion here is rhubarb from our little village, a rhubarb that should bring festive cheer and happy Xmas to all who participate. An ideal festive season gift (and no it is not for sale at Dimitra’s supermarket), it’s a plant, and excuse to include ourselves with her modest decorations and wish all happy joyful wot-sits and good health for 2015 from the Comet Corporation, as in Jennifer and myself.
It appears we may have touched a nerve and have come across and trying to blacken the nations of Britain and the States with this rhubarb, for which we apologize profusely. We misinformed rural Hellenophiles often get our international news source from places as unreliable as CNN and BBC, our local news is impeccable however. Gossip here is always on the money, and our object at the Comet is to take the piss out of life, everyone and most of all ourselves. Please in future when and if you consult this site, bear in mind, it is written with a tongue-in-a-cheek. So have a nice day and enjoy the hols. Ed.
