What happened to Halloween? Did I miss it?

I wanted to do a booed thing for my department. This morning I stopped at the 99 cent store to see if they had some holiday containers to put some treats in. I wasn't feeling what I was seeing. Then I had the bright idea that since my next stop was Costco they might have some big Halloween things (what, I don't know) that might work. Smart. No, not so smart.

I went into Costco and Halloween things are nearly nonexistent. It's all Christmas stuff. I know Christmas things are put out earlier and earlier each year, but when I was I supposed to shop for Halloween?

At this point I'll probably have to just send out Snickers bars to do the booed thing. No, that won't work. I'm not crazy enough to give up Snickers bars.

I agree; holidays are rushed through. However... I saw $1 Halloween buckets/containers at Walmart

Maybe everyone is worried about Halloween in these violent times.
Did you see that the candy companies were trying to get Halloween switched to a Saturday?
Try the craft store. They may have something that you can use.
I did notice that the Halloween displays are considerably smaller this year.

I went to Pier 1 today looking for some wall art and fall decorations for my house. There was a tiny section with fall stuff and a HUGE section with Christmas things!

Have you tried a Hobby Lobby? We lost a house and many Fall decorations last year in the Campfire. I plan to restock when I can get to Hobby Lobby.

You need to plan ahead. Please do all your Halloween shopping in August, your Xmas shopping in October, your Valentines Day shopping on Jan. 2, and your Easter shopping on Feb. 1. There will be no shopping for Thanksgiving. Instead, all the stores will open at 10 a.m. on Thanksgiving day so you can buy stuff for yourself. The stores apologize for not opening earlier than 10 a.m., but they are sure you understand how important it is for their employees to enjoy the holiday with their families.

Where’d Halloween go?

So true. I went to Rite Aid today and two full aisles have empty shelves, but a zillion boxes labeled with Christmas merchandise. They used to have a ton of Halloween stuff through the end of October.

The past few years I have been know to scream “Stop! I haven’t had my big dinner yet.” I want to enjoy Fall and Thanksgiving and not consider Christmas til December 1st.
