Creme eggs and other bunny shaped chocolate popped up in Easter displays just after Christmas, Metro reports.
There are more than 100 days til Easter - it's months away! And we're only just getting over Christmas! We've only just finished guzzling gravy, porking over pigs in blankets, gobbling turkey and stuffing ourselves with stuffing (the sage and onion variety), and now we have to cope with the next excess in the Christian calendar.
Do they think we will just buy anything? Actually, yes, we are pretty thick as a race so maybe it's not that much of a surprise.
People took to Twitter to complain about all the Easter eggs and other paraphernalia. They are not happy bunnies.

If this doesn't illustrate the true commercialisation of all our favourite times of years, then I don't know what does. 'Hey, remember Jesus, he died for our sins and stuff and eat your face full of cocoa and buy our shit'.
You would have thought that the next festival would have been Valentine's Day. When will the supermarkets bring out the pink chocolate, novelty hearts and mawkish teddy bears that only pathetic human beings crave? The beginning of January - a few days after the Easter displays? At this rate, there's going to be a weird overlap between Easter and Valentine's Day.
This makes no sense! #MakeEasterSpringAgain
