After Thanksmas - Valenpatster!

After the Thanksmas season ends, some people get sad. Some folks look back at The Season, and at their waistlines, and decide that now, with the beginning of the New Year, the time has come for calm and moderation. Not retailers though! For retailers, it's time for - Valenpatster!! The amalgamated celebration of Hearts, Shamrocks, and Bunnies that exists to sell you Chocolate, Beer, and Chocolate, in that order. Also Flowers, More Beer, and Fancy Hats, also in that order.
Seriously, the items in the above picture should not be on store shelves at the same time, and neither should be out in the first week of January.

Mmmmm, Cadbury Caramel eggs... Now I need to go to CVS and see if they have 'em yet. (As if I still didn't have Christmas candy...)
