I was lucky enough to come home to Johannesburg for the Easter weekend. It has been a very busy, very short break. But a much deserved one nevertheless! Whilst spending some time with my extended family, my youngest cousin, Sabrina, was talking about all the plans she has for her school holidays. And my younger brother, Bradley, became very upset when he realised that Sabrina was going to be on holiday until next week Tuesday, 3 May 2011. The reason this upset my brother, is because Sabrina goes to a government school (unlike my brother who is a private, Catholic school), which means she has already had her first term break. Being allowed to miss seven days of school, in the middle of term time, is usually a very difficult thing to get away with.

Maybe we are gullible. Well some maybe. I have been at times swept up in the whirlwind of "you must do it!!!!!" so maybe at times we all are. For years though I have detested the marketing that the FMCG industry goes through to make us feel guilty that we are not participating in their event. They pull on our heartstrings at every opposrtunity, they make us feel guilty for not participating and then, suckered at last we part with even more cash than we should do just to get a ticket to the game.Lets start in January and look at the calendar year from an FMCG perspective.
