out of place

what's wrong with this picture? can you see? do you notice what just does not belong in sight - or production - at christmastime? maybe i shouldn't let things like this annoy me. but i'm such a traditionalist, especially around holidays, that it does. by my calculation, this oddball item is more than four months premature. that said, i bought it. for christmas. it will make the girl laugh to see something so badly out of place this special time of year.

It's NEVER wrong to have a Cadbury Cream Egg. Love them. And I so enjoy your site and your everyday things you post.

If she doesn't like it, you can send it to me. Those are my favorite, and if I could find any right now, I would SO buy some. This still made me smile, even though I'm a bit jealous. :)

Now surely you wouldn't be referring to the Cadbury Egg? lol Like a sore thumb, it is out there.

Nora said...

I hope the little girl catches on to the joke. Was it really already for sale in the store?

It reminds me of saving marshmallow peeps for a friend of mine who preferred them stale. I would save them until her June birthday and absolutely delight her with them!

By the way, puh-LEASE check out my blog for Dec 17. My family and I are having a contest for a FREE week on the Maine coast this coming April... contest deadline is Dev 31st. Let anyone you know who deserves it know about it please... we want it to make a truly special respite for someone deserving. Spread the word. No gimmicks. Its real.

Cadbury's are either getting rid of old stock, or are REALLY early with the Easter stock for 2011!

I've noticed every year that they sneak them into stores earlier and earlier, but at least they could wait for it to be the correct year before doing it lol!

I actually live near Cadbury's in England :) Fun fact of the day.

Wow...what I wouldn't give for a Cadbury Egg right about now. I have a couple months to wait though. I'm so jealous of those people who have them year round!
