Seriously?


I was just over at Romance Divas expressing my dismay at finding Halloween candy on sale at Walgreens today.
It's AUGUST, people.
I understand the fire has gone out under the pool toys and flip flops, but what happened to a solid month of Back to School? If it's already time to start thinking about Halloween, that means come October it will be time to start stocking up for Christmas.
This is just getting out of hand. I would really like to see the sales numbers for retail stores to find out how much profit they actually make by selling holiday items more than two months ahead of time. Do they really think they can create a demand for something that no one wants to think about for another eight weeks at least?
I just don't get it.

Gotchya beat -- I saw THANKSFREAKINGIVING stuff in a store this week. ((sigh)) This means Xmas stuff will be out by Labor Day.....

Yep, it's about time for Wal-Mart to start putting out the Halloween stuff, too. Two months goes by in a flash these days.

I think they should just sell all the holiday stuff all year long, that way there will be NO chance of them missing any sales.
