Sir: I noticed with some astonishment this week that Sainsbury's are selling hot cross buns. Are they making the excellent point that Christmas is inseparable from Easter? Or does postmodernism mean that we now pick and mix the symbols for our festivals? Next year perhaps we could have Maypole dancing on August Bank Holiday, and two minutes' silence on 4 July.
