Have you ever walked by something and had to do a double-take.  That was me as I was walking through the Rochester, Minnesota Hobby Lobby store this weekend.  I was searching for the good clearance items and was not mentally prepared for what I ran into.  CHRISTMAS! I was shocked to see wreaths and the typical Christmas plaid ribbons around the first day of Summer.

Did I just see Christmas stuff at Hobby Lobby in Rochester, Minnesota?

If you go to Hobby Lobby and venture over to the left side of the store, you WILL see Christmas.  The full trees weren't up when I walked through but there were a whole bunch of wreaths and ribbons that you could throw in your cart and save for the big day.

Christmas has arrived in Rochester...and it is only June

Is this normal? It is June but Christmas items have already been spotted on shelves in Rochester, Minnesota. I was walking around Hobby Lobby the other day and was walking around trying to find the best clearance items and accidentally ran into aisles full of Christmas decor.

Are there other stores in Rochester, Minnesota that have other Christmas items out too?

Christmas in June seems a bit early to me but maybe this is our new normal.  I have zero idea, especially since I didn't even go in stores most of 2020 due to COVID.  Maybe I'm just out of the loop on a lot of shopping since the miracle workers at Walmart do all of my shopping for me and just put my bags in my car.  Have you seen Christmas show up in other stores already?  If so, let me know and send me a note over on my Facebook page - Jessica On The Radio - or on Instagram.
