Christmas chocolate

Oh my goodness! I've just been to Tesco and they have stacks of the big tins of Celebrations etc. at £5 each.

Sadly, Christmas Eve is the safest time for me to buy chocolate if it is going to still be around on Christmas Day

Same here, I cant ever keep tins of chocolate in the house, esp as I'm on Weight Watchers at the moment. The only ones I wouldn't eat are the toffees, they are always left at the end

I absolutely love Christmas, and chocolate tins being on sale was always a big yay from me from being a child as it meant it Christmas was close.

Now I don't even really associate the chocolate tins with Christmas as they sell them sooooo early.

Having Christmas shelves up before December doesn't bother me as I'm always eager to get started but for me it would be nice to see them get Halloween out of the way first like in the good old days

One of the shops in Dublin apparently has their Christmas window displays done. Complete with Christmas trees... I haven't seen it in person yet but I saw pictures on facebook. I reckon their calendar is broken

I suppose those tins would be useful if you are into Trick or Treating.

Wow, I am really excited for Christmas this year & have to confess to stalking the disney website recently for any new decorations. I do think august is a tad bit early though for full on Christmas displays & the chocolate...........I made the mistake of buying a tin in sept a few years ago.....it was gone by the October 🙈
