What Month Is It?

Got a big surprise
at the store today.
Looking for costumes
I found Christmas displays.

I searched the aisles
for ghosts and ghouls,
instead all I found
were Christmas jewels.

I looked for pumpkins,
but found lighted trees.
Festive ornaments
instead of bulk candy.

What month is it?
October, right?
Then why is Santa
giving me a fright?

Stores seem confused by
the calendar dates.
Buying for Halloween?
It's already too late.


  1. We had exactly the same experience this week! What are they thinking? We were ready to put down good money for a ghoul but not for a wreath!

    1. I know, right? What are the stores thinking? Pretty soon we'll see Christmas stuff around the 4th of July! =)
