Depending on where you live, it may not feel like fall is coming despite the equinox date being a little over two weeks away. Here in California it still feels like summer, too hot to do chores or cook dinner, and too hot to put the shorts into seasonal retirement and break the socks out of their drawer just drawer just yet. But there still other signs that the fall season is approaching. Just walk into any retail store and you will see leftover barbecue supplies and pool equipment being put on clearance and the back-to-school supplies being reduced to 75 cents each. This is to get ready to stock the stores for the big event of fall: Halloween.
So anyhow, the Halloween stuff at Kmart has so far included two aisle displays of costumes, as well as another such display on the back wall. When I walked in yesterday, only the kids one were up as of yet and today I noticed more, including some adult ones. I saw one called Zombie Hot Dog. I unfortunately did not get a picture of that one. (All the photos were from yesterday, Sept. 5).

Plastic pumpkin containers on the shelves above racks soon to
filled with costumes. The wall has been filled as of today.
And while I was at Kmart I just had to get my first bag of candy corn this year. Another thing that goes with fall and Halloween.
