🗓️ There’s a reason why Halloween feels as if its coming earlier each year
Sometimes shop owners think they can lengthen out a spending season if they start selling themed goods a little bit earlier in the year. Most people have noticed this around Christmas, with a phenomenon called ‘Christmas Creep’. However, it also has been known to happen around Easter, Valentine’s Day, and, yup, Halloween. This year, Starbucks started offering its Pumpkin Spice Latte in August, a full two months ahead of Halloween!
Despite this seasonal creep, experts don’t actually believe retailers necessarily make more money by stretching seasons out like this; some think you’ve got to be in the mood to do seasonal shopping.
