  1. I’d like ‘Early Closing Wednesdays’; I’m into UK nostalgia. 😁
    But you may have missed that, Rory, growing up elsewhere. The law said all shops had to close up for Wednesday afternoons, as well as all day on Sundays. Can you imagine? 😛

    1. Hey Ian,

      Okies that is your chosen day then 🙂

      I remember half – day closure on Wednesday.

      When l returned to England from Australia in 77, we lived for six hellish months in North Wales with family on my father’s side. We lived in a village called Trefriw. The nearest ‘Town’ was called Llanrwst and come Wednesday afternoon, the shops would shut – a couple stayed open to slightly later, but mostly they closed down also.

      I remember being baffled as to why they bothered? The Post Office in Trefriw, come Wednesday would shut at midday.

      Now strangely enough … here in Sandwich they have a similar set up which l find baffling also – they shut at 2pm on a Wednesday!!

      Mind you l feel, that some of these older traditions may disappear quicker come the arrival of the shops reopening after this lockdown … if they ever do, because many of the smaller shops are going under and sinking quicker than Titanic.

      1. Wales is a funny place. Even now, it’s like the whole country shuts down for Mondays – even the pubs! Caught us out a few times holidaying there; now we time our visits not to begin at the start of the week; maybe we come home on a Monday instead.

    2. Mind you, Sunday trading l remember that stopping somewhere in the early 90’s , and half day closing fizzling out at the same time … ish. Then Late night trading started ……. and l remember also reading an article not long back [five or six years ago], that they were thinking of reintroducing half day closures again to ease the stress of staff.

      Shops are almost becoming redundant in today’s world, more so with online shopping availability, retail high streets crumbling and this pandemic … l think in the next five years only seriously exclusive/elitish shops will remain.

      1. Their overheads are too high and everyone wants to pay less than things are worth. Elitist shops and Poundstretchers is what we’ll end up with.
        I’d like town councils to organise more daily markets. They draw in visitors and are cheaper for smaller and start-up traders. Our nearest town has one a week, varying the types of goods over a month – but that’s just four each month. They could do three a week – ‘farmers’ market; artisans market; non-food market; for example.

        1. Yes, l totally agree with you there … l too would like to see markets and several times a week. Here we have or did have on a Wednesday/Thursday in respective order a small market [Weds] and a much bigger market [Thurs] which offered all sorts of ‘fayre’ to travellers 🙂

          But markets / farmers markets are a really lovely tradition l would not like to see fall … of course many ‘town/village markets’ opened up farmer’s shops …

        2. Good Evening… I made to the MoooDay Hello before it was Toad’sDay 😂😂
          Both of your picks are new to me… 🤷🏼‍♀️🎶💃🏼 Why was Smokey hitting his bandmate?? Did he run off with Alice?😂

          Hope it’s been a good day… I’ll be hopping off now 🐰🐇🤪


        3. Well in fact, l can think of – most likely you are the same – several towns that have either cheap poundstretcher type shops, pubs and gambling shops only already. I know of a few towns that have elitist shops and again pound shops … it’ll not be long before that is the way it is, sadly.

      2. I miss the old-fashioned Sundays. I’m not religious but I feel it’s good to have a national day off once a week, when no one feels pressured to do anything.

        1. I agree Ian. I worked in retail for many years in both managerial and staffing positions, l do know the pressures staff are under – we don’t need shops to be open 7 days a week it’s purely commercial greed.

  2. I was mystified by ‘naming a day a name…etc’, so I read the comments to get a clue. I admit I still don’t have one. O_o Are you looking for (borrowing Frank’s prompt title) something like “Truthful Tuesdays”? I’d go with “Weirdo Wednesdays” – a day to celebrate one’s freak and let it fly! 😉

    1. Why are you confused Melanie?

      You have a named day already – do you not recall Sour Sassy Saturday?

      In today’s Hello, there are two ‘Named Days’ banners … Paula has Waffle Day Monday and Juju has Biz Day Monday.

      It was a feature run last year where upon l had feature banners created for bloggers.
