According to our calendar, this year Easter will be on April 20th, 2014. Why do we have Easter items in stores now?

We all know the Easter items are out when the St Patrick's Day goodies are still on shelves because stores are anxious to grab as much of a consumer's money as possible.

The Easter items shown are nonsense of course, nothing to do with being a Christian or celebrating Christ and the Resurrection in any manner. For this reason many be avoiding these items totally.

Many may not even realize when Easter is this year because it is not on the same date each year. Most might have their meal in mind for the day if they are preparing a large one for family and friends.

Are you looking for Easter items like the ones in this photo?
