People Baffled As Easter Eggs Go On Sale In Shops Just Days After Christmas

Welcome to Twixmas - the strange nether-zone between Christmas Day and New Year where time is relative, leftovers are de rigueur and watching films all day every day is mandatory.

But while some of us are still only just polishing off our turkey leftovers from last week, supermarkets are already gearing up for the future - specifically, April 4th 2021.

Yep, some stores have started stocking Easter eggs as early as Boxing Day in the run up to the next big holiday - leaving some punters bemused.

Several people took to Twitter to share snaps of supermarkets stocking up on choccy eggs, despite the big day not for another three months.

"It always puzzles me. Who would buy an Easter egg immediately after Christmas?" asked one person after seeing a Waitrose store already had a few Lindt bunnies on display.

"Easter eggs on sale in Home Bargains! OMG!" tweeted another observer from Wales. "This shouldn't be allowed! Can we at least have New Year over first?"


"When you know Christmas is over," commented a third, posting a photo of Crème Eggs for sale in her local store.

"Why am I seeing Easter Eggs on the shelves at @morrisons as of now 27th December 2020.We have only just got done with Christmas!" complained a fourth.

However, not everyone was so opposed with stocking up for Easter way ahead of time.


"Merry Christmas, I just ate an Easter egg!" one person gleefully told their followers, while another said: "I also wouldn't say no to a Creme Egg if I saw one."

The coronavirus pandemic has left our social calendars completely out of whack for the last nine months, with many people choosing to put up their Christmas decorations earlier this year in order to feel some festive cheer in an otherwise gloomy year.

And according to science, putting up your tree and tinsel ahead of schedule may make you a happier person.


Psychotherapist Ruairi Stewart, who goes by The Happy Whole Coach, told Tyla: "This time of year represents many different things in terms of memories, emotions or feelings of nostalgia.

"This has been a tough year for a lot of people and putting the tree up early might be helping them heal or connect to happier times."
