Crazy Christmas marketing

I almost spewed coffee across my keyboard this morning when I saw the Denver Post article.

We’ve all complained about Christmas decorations appearing before Halloween, but this beats that by a mile. Or a couple of months, at least. It seems Cadbury Easter candy is currently being sold in Colorado by KingSoopers supermarkets, a division of Kroger. A spokesperson for the chain says customers want the candy now.

I know I’m out of touch and out of step, but I’ve yet to hear a frantic Christmas shopper exclaim, “I’ve looked everywhere and can’t find any chocolate Easter eggs for the kids’ Christmas stockings!”
