Just back from a short shopping trip.

Easter eggs on display.

Christmas must be over, and I never even noticed.

A lifetime ago in the late 40s or early '50s my kid brother was trained as a rep. for Cadburys.

In those days the rep told the shopkeeper what he could have .... Cadbury didn't think Woolworths was worthy of their product!

At that time he was accepting orders in August, for Easter.
Just when he did the same for Christmas I'm not sure, but I think it was around June.

Don't tell the children about Easter yet, let them have a break...

When i worked in Logistics a few years ago we delivered the following:
August/September Artifical Christmas Tree's.
September - Early December Christmas Goodies.
Mid/Late December Jan Sales & Easter Goodies.
Jan/Feb/March Summer Cloths.
June/July Winter Cloths.

It was strange to turn up in shorts/t-shirt & work boots in the haet of the summer delivering 10 thousand Christmas Trees!
But not as bad as the poor guy at M&S who had to find somewhere for them!!!
