Costco Helps You Deck The Halls… In August

Reader Darascon spotted this lovely example of summertime Christmas Creep at his local Costco.

Was walking through my local Gaithersburg, MD Costco shopping for my 55 gal drum of mayo when I spotted the creep. Now America’s cries for 100 yard bolts of wrapping paper and 50 yard rolls of ribbon have been answered. Forgive the somewhat craptastic photo, was taken with my cell.

You are forgiven, of course. It’s the Christmas Spirit in us, we guess.
