An alarming number of people have been tricked into thinking cellophane is silver wrapping paper


BUYING WRAPPING PAPER is one of those annoying little Christmas tasks that often slips your mind. But this? This is not helping things.

No doubt Big Cellophane is behind this. We won’t be duped by them again. CONSTANT VIGILANCE.
