Season’s change

What we can expect, starting this week:

By this evening the retailers will be in full holiday season mode, shilling Halloween. Before the candy corn is even stale the first Christmas advertising will crop up. Ready or not, here it comes. Clothing stores have been stocked with sweaters and coats for a month. Worse, shoppers will soon be wearing them. No more tight tank tops and short shorts. On the bright side the shapely ladies will be wearing tight jeans and boots.

Given the usual progress of these things, I expect all the Valentine’s Day crap to show up a few days after Thanksgiving.

    Too late – one of the chain pharmacies near me had candy corn (bleagh) out two weeks ago.

    Years ago a Walgreens hereabouts had the Halloween candy out in August. It only happened once though — I guess somebody was overheard saying something snarky about it, or posted something snarky online.

    I wonder who that could have been?
