The Wearing Of The Green Starts Two Months Before St. Patrick’s Day At Big Lots

wearingreen1Oh Paddy dear, and did you hear the news that’s going round? The shamrock is already thick on the ground at Big Lots, a full two and a half months before St. Patrick’s Day. Or maybe this store just has a really loyal Irish customer base.

While it’s not like we’re super worried that Valentine’s Day won’t get its due attention (read: not worried at all because we know the hearts and mushy cards will coat the country in a blanket of buyable affection) it’s still way, way too early to decorate for St. Patrick’s Day.

At least reader Leigh thinks so when she submitted the above and below pics in Maryland yesterday, writing: “This is worse than Target setting up for Valentine’s the day after Christmas.”
