Anniversary Of Jesus’ Death Once Again Coincides With Annual Chocolate Festival

In an uncanny scheduling coincidence, the world’s largest Chocolate Festival will again fall on the same weekend as the Christian festival marking Jesus’ death.

The Chocolate Festival is traditionally held three-and-a-half full moons after the end of the Boxing Day sales.

A spokesperson for the Chocolate Festival described the clash as ‘frustrating’.

“More and more people these days don’t even know the true story of the Easter Bunny – how he came to resurrect our sales during a tough trading period. The last thing we need is another festival confusing things”.
