Ion stale cookies

I was surprised while shopping yesterday to see all the Christmas decorations and treats in the shops already. I was really confused. Okay, yes it seems early and I had the normal WTF reaction, but I’m confused by something else. Who buys cookies in October for the end of December? Who is buying the giant containers of candied popcorn or jelly sweets two months in advance? Surely they will be gross by then? Stick to buying decorations and Christmas cakes, at least those never expire.

          No. Ginger is death.

            You should put their heads on toothpicks & plant them around your house as a warning to the rest of them.

    Just putting it out there, I think people buy the sweets and cookies for Christmas not now for then, but rather between now and then, sort of thing.
