All holidays promote candy in some way shape or form.
I really wondered when I started 2 weeks before Thanksgiving what was I thinking to start a diet 2 weeks before the holiday. But truthfully there is no real good "start date" for dieting.
Every holiday there is candy.
Christmas: Candy canes
Valentines day: Heart shaped boxes ful of candy
Easter: Eggs with candy, marshmellow peeps.
I'm afraid to see what I never paid attention to with Saint Patties day (I only remember wearing green and lots of drinking, which I stopped both years ago).
It is no wonder that January 1st has all those promotions for low calorie foods. It's not just about resolutions but it's mostly one of the few months there is not tons of candy on display.
Once January hits 2 weeks in, I noticed all the gym equipment heading to the back of the store again and the candy and valentine cards hit the shelves.
Part of me want's to blame whomever created all these holiday's and then I realized some is society and what we have come to just expect with each holiday.
I sudder a bit when I think of the movie Walle and wonder will there be a future like that for us one day?
