Christmas Creep Alert: Buy Thanksgiving Treats Now

If you're planning to decorate your Thanksgiving table with a batch of Thanksgiving Blessings Mix this year, stock up on seasonal candies now!

Rising tides of "Christmas Creep" means you may not be able to find Autumn-themed chocolate kisses, candy corn or gift bags when you need them next month.

In the last two years, many readers reported that seasonal candies were very hard to find after Halloween, making it difficult to assemble Blessings Mix gifts. This year, Christmas merchandise is already crowding Halloween displays in many stores, and poor Thanksgiving has been elbowed aside entirely.

Smart shoppers will add these items to grocery lists now, to be ready for November's crafting. And while you're in the store, why not let the manager know how we feel about the loss of Thanksgiving from the seasonal rotation? Take aim against Christmas Creep!
