Today is August 23rd right? I’m just checking because today when I ran into the grocery store I saw this
Yes, that is a Halloween display complete with creepy tree and signs hanging everywhere… and the candy! Shelves and shelves of candy…
I’m not impressed. I am not sold and I am not down with even thinking about Halloween yet!!
School hasn’t even started yet. Fall isn’t even here yet.
Why so soon? What’s the rush…?
Do they think I will buy my candy early and save it for over two months old by the time trick or treaters come?
Or, are they thinking I will buy candy now and eat it, then buy more, eat that, buy more and so on?
That’s it isn’t it.
I’ll tell you what, it is not happening! None of it.
I refuse to even think about Halloween until at least October. Probably mid October. I do not buy my candy until a couple of days before Halloween, and I often wait until the day of. Halloween has no business in August. I refuse to buy into the panic or the hype.
It’s stupid, it’s irritating and it’s just ridiculous!
