I’ve worked in the retail business before, so I know how this works, and I know why it happens, but it is still a little overwhelming walking into a store (basically any store that sells seasonal items) and seeing the Halloween Candy, the Thanksgiving decorations and the Christmas stockings all basically back to back or even in the same aisle…depending on the size of the store. I’m not even sure where to begin. I know I need to get a costume for Connor, candy for the trick-or-treaters, decorations for Thanksgiving since I’m hosting and probably some new Christmas stockings for our new mantle. Maybe I should be thankful, I guess I can get it all in the same shopping trip now.
Happy seasonal shopping.
