The issue of shopping on Sundays in the last month of the year has been in doubt for some time. All because if we want to stick to the calendar, the stores must also be open on Christmas Eve! There are many indications that the House of Representatives will decide otherwise.

The group created by Szymon Hołownia proposed postponing shopping on Sunday, which was supposed to fall on December 24. The committee, which includes representatives from several different parliamentary clubs, supported the vote Introduction to shopping on Sundays, December 10 and 17. 17 deputies voted “yes”, 8 abstained from voting, and no one opposed.
What’s next with the project? Now, taking into account the committee’s recommendations, the proposal must be passed by the House of Representatives. Taking into account that the request is submitted by Polska 2050, one of the parties that constitute the current parliamentary majority, this appears to be a mere formality. We expect Parliament to consider the project tomorrow – Wednesday, November 29.

Echo Richards embodies a personality that is a delightful contradiction: a humble musicaholic who never brags about her expansive knowledge of both classic and contemporary tunes. Infuriatingly modest, one would never know from a mere conversation how deeply entrenched she is in the world of music. This passion seamlessly translates into her problem-solving skills, with Echo often drawing inspiration from melodies and rhythms. A voracious reader, she dives deep into literature, using stories to influence her own hardcore writing. Her spirited advocacy for alcohol isn’t about mere indulgence, but about celebrating life’s poignant moments.
