Summer Samhain

Forgot to note this last week: on Sunday, July 17th, I saw the first Halloween candy of the season (can I say "of the season" when it's still the middle of the summer?). At the local Walgreen's, they were putting out bags of Brach's Autumn Mix--the cousin to candy corn that includes pumpkins, corn, and other autumn-themed candy. If you want to be a stickler, I guess we can call this "autumn candy" rather than "Halloween candy," but seeing as how they only put it out during the pre-Halloween period and they mark it down the day after Halloween along with all the other Halloween candy, I think I can make a convincing case that this was indeed Halloween candy.

I was in JoAnn's the other night and they are putting out fall stuff and Halloween things already also....I think they are rushing the seasons way to fast. Before you know it they will be putting Christmas stuff out in Feb.

I am more tolerant of early Halloween and/or Christmas stuff at JoAnn's or Hobby Lobby or Michael's, because much of what they sell is used in crafts that might take time to prepare. I can assure you, though, that it doesn't take me very long at all to eat candy!
