Don't go down to the shops today

The surprise will be that they will be closed because today is el Día del Padres. Whilst Mothers' Day may be very important in Britain, it is the fathers who get the recognition here in Spain. This morning, dads throughout the country will be pampered; they will be given the traditional present by their offspring and may even get a cup of tea in bed. 

Don't worry though, tomorrow it will all be back to normal and the carefully chosen tie will be relegated to the wardrobe with all the others.
