Seasonal hazards

 

Sir, – Barry Rooney has noted a radio advert for the Gaiety Theatre’s panto season (September 24th). I am afraid I can beat that. On Saturday night a bus parked in Abbey Street, and instead of showing an “out of service” notice, it had: “Happy Xmas from all the staff in Dublin Bus”. Apparently Christmas comes with the autumn leaves. – Yours, etc,

Sir, – Regarding the Gaiety Theatre panto radio jingle, Barry Rooney inquires if he was hearing things. Oh no, he wasn’t! – Yours, etc,

Sir, – I note that letters complaining about Christmas coming earlier every year are themselves coming earlier every year! – Yours, etc,
