    Highly preferable to the moronic, meaningless and sycophantic creeping introduction of Black Friday sales in Australia. Some insensitive retailers are even following this with Black Saturday sales. Apart from the 10th anniversary of Black Saturday coming this January, when over 170 people died in Victorian and we and our neighbours almost lost our homes, over 70 lost their lives on Black Friday in 1939.

    We've already adopted Halloween, so what's next? Thanksgiving?
    Why not move the Australia Day holiday to the 4th of July. Sorry, sorry. July 4.

    A long process. We adopted the US shopkeepers' version of Mothers' Day years ago. My mother used to insist it was in mid-Lent, without heaps of shop-bought presents, not in May. Then they invented Father's Day, for more spending.

    Yes, my recollection from when I was a kid is that we originally had Mothering Sunday in March, which was a church occasion, then it was later replaced by Mothers' Day as we now know it, on a different date. For the last few years I've noticed businesses wishing us "Happy Holidays" instead of Merry Christmas. We now have roast turkey at Christmas, instead of wombat.

    I don't recall ever eating a wombat. My oldies had served up brush turkey, which I am told was gamey and tough and not worth the bother. The ones in my garden are safe from me.

    Goose is a traditional Australian Christmas dish. Free range and hormone free of course. Take a long time to pluck but worth it.

    Dad doesn't remember her actually serving it, but Granny was from Gippsland and known to have eaten wombat.

    Same recipe as for cockatoo. Place in a pot of boiling water along with several small rocks. Boil until the rocks are tender, then eat the rocks.
