Easter Candies Out Before Christmas?!?!

Been wanting to ask others this question---while shopping before Christmas I saw several WalMarts with Easter Candies already on the shelves! I haven't noticed them in other stores even yet; I guess that may be because other stores just don't have the space to feature the candies yet? What are your ideas on this?

It should go by the holiday that is at hand. Not Christmas at Halloween,not Valentine's at Christmas. Let's do one holiday at a time.

You're kidding? Easter candy.. can we say GREED?

I have seen Valentines Day candy and etc. being put out a few days before Christmas but not easter yet. Goodness!

Good thing I'll be making my own easter cookies, Yay!! I found easter cookie molds still in their original pkg. at the thrift store ( yep, before Christmas) LOL! Got the whole bag for 30 cents.

Sugar Cookies work great for Easter. And again LOL! Can't you tell I'm the frugal living moderator ((smiles)).

Anna, I always shop the thrift stores and at the Amish community before I shop a regular store. Bargins all the time, and I donlt mind second hand at all! Good for you on the cookie molds! By the way, my DS's households wouldn't be complete without all the thrift store bargins!

I haven't seen the Easter candy yet but I did see Valentine's Day candy out with the Christmas candy at CVS before Christmas.

It's just ridiculous!!

My CVS store is just now putting out Valentine's day as they had to clear out the Christmas leftovers first.

I did see those Cadbury Eggs out before Christmas at the grocery.

The ones I mainly saw at WalMart was the Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs and my first thought was why because they have Reese's Peanut Butter Christmas Trees!

I've seen Valentine's and St. Patrick's Day stuff, along with some spring and garden things but haven't seen Easter candy yet.
