Well its to be expected and not really that much of a leak. I'd consider it a bigger issue (or more interesting for me at least) if they had the names of games/content to be in that sale. Heck I've used steam long enough to know that when there is a national holiday, be it a bank holiday or a festival Steam has a sale planned.

Steam sale a little weird. I've seen games that are, for eg: $10 - sale comes along with a 50% off - price is now $7 - aye? - look at regular price which now states that the game is normally $14.

They jack up the price before applying the discount.
