The price of Christmas is lumbering relentlessly upwards and our local stores are urging us to amble down their aisles to select our goodies.

Aiding us, one of the stores is displaying its generosity by illuminating fantastic price drops with bright yellow l abels.

Could they not come clean and warn us, with red labels, about price increases?

I was bitterly disappointed, just a week ago, to discover that my favourite flavoured yoghurt, their own brand, had increased in price by nearly 15 per cent. Mind you, elsewhere, I was rocked by a 40 per cent increase in the price of a bottle of butane gas.

But then I suppose that double dip depressions will never walk hand in hand with the spirit of Christmas.
