If you were wondering, Easter is April 20 this year. Christmas, of course, was December 25. At Big Lots, the period of mid-to-late January is a time of peaceful coexistence of holidays. It is a time when we celebrate both the birth and resurrection of Jesus. It is a time when the Easter stuff hits the shelves, even though the Christmas stuff hasn’t all sold yet.
“They had 3+ aisles still left of Christmas items on clearance that it seems no one wanted to buy,” writes reader Lynn, who found this display at a Big lots in the Southwest. “Not only was the Christmas stuff invading on Easter turf but there was St. Patrick’s Day stuff right around the corner. Wacky!”
What, no Valentine’s Day on the same shelf?
