  • Good question! I like it that stuff comes a little early so I can get things to decorate, but really, Easter in January is ridiculous!

  • As long as we keep buying it they will keep bringing it out for sale earlier and earlier.

  • I have always felt the same way. Encouraging us to rush and not enjoy the moment. Sucks the fun out.

  • Yes, it bugs me, but retailors do it because they know people will buy it, especially the candy products, and then people will buy it all again because they couldn't wait & ate it all. It's really our own fault for not having self-control....rofl

  • I freaking know! I haven't seen Easter stuff yet but I seen St Patttys day stuff. They put stuff out way to far in advance. I was seeing Christmas before Halloween

  • So true. However, there is an economics reason for that. The worst the economy is, the earlier retailers start selling holiday goods. That's why in the 90s, when things were good, the Christmas sales didn't start until after Thanksgiving and now they start before Halloween.
