October (no) surprise
When I went grocery shopping last Sunday I - of course - saw Halloween decorations on the shelf. It's become a standard joke, but it's still weird to see these black cats and pumpkins when kids aren't quite back from summer vacation. But they know that as stupid as it may look, there's money to be made. Just think of all the people who buy Halloween candy early, eat it themselves, and are on their fourth bag by the time the trick-or-treaters arrive.
