Happy Easter, Mr. Wharton

In England, the Monday of Easter Week is commonly known as "Poor Man's Easter Day," as it is the day on which men who have been callously sacked (by a bishop of Newcastle for example) and consigned to the scrapheap of life with no hope of ever realising their true potential, go out and buy their wife an Easter egg for half price in the sale as they were not able to afford one at the full retail price.

  1. I’m a devotee of Poor Person’s Christmas Day (what fur’ners may refer to as “Boxing Day”) for the same reason.
