Some Things Don’t Change

It may seem odd to post something about Christmas at this time of year, but I’m still immersed in cake research and I came across this in a book of Kitchen Essays:

Year by year the propaganda of the shops grows increasingly active; and their suggestions for the keeping of that high feast, including such secular items as dozens of brandy, whisky, and champagne, appear annually more elaborate and incongruous than ever before.

Agnes Jekyll (sister-in-law of the more famous Gertrude), writing in the early 1920s. I imagine she turns in her grave regularly every December.
