After a long, hot summer here in Austin it is finally time for the holidays apparently. Or, at least that’s the feeling at Costco. But the question really is, which holiday is coming up? Is it Halloween? Or, is it Christmas? Well, because Costco always goes that extra mile for their customers, they’ve got both covered. You can get your Halloween costume and Christmas lights in the same trip. Or, pick up some Christmas ornaments along with your bags of Halloween candy.
We took these photos this weekend when we were at Costco because they’ve been simultaneously celebrating Halloween and Christmas for a couple of weeks now.
We figured it wasn’t going away, and was funny enough that it should be a post that I share with everyone. Is it just me or do stores put out holiday stuff earlier and earlier each year? I mean, it was still August when they started having these items again. How much prep time do you need for Halloween really?
I’m hoping, and guessing, that this is just Costco trying to sell out of some stock that was leftover from last year’s holiday season. It just struck me as so funny to see Santa Claus on one aisle and a big hanging bat on the other.
