Boo! Is it too early for Halloween in Ocean County, New Jersey?

Boo! Yes, really I say “Boo” because I see Halloween here in Ocean County. The question is, is it too early to have Halloween in store here in Jersey Shore?

I get it, the early bird gets the worm and with sales it’s first come, first served. We always move on to the next holiday as soon as possible, but does that take away the event?

For me, it does not matter and it does not deprive me of a vacation if you release the goods 3 months in advance. If I’m interested in something I can grab, otherwise I jump right in and go get what I came for in the store. One thing that does happen though is that some items eventually sell out and then when I’m ready to buy they disappear.

I like to think about the future. For example, taking a few moments to view “autumn” and/or Halloween scenery makes me think of better weather and cool “autumn” nights, especially when the forecast calls for temperatures approaching 100 degrees. end of July/August.

Take our poll and we’ll see how you feel at home, is it too early for Halloween in the stores?

I haven’t done any Halloween shopping, but I’m growing my pumpkin patch at home in hopes of getting a few pumpkins for Halloween this year. Time will tell if it’s a good crop, but fingers crossed.

WATCH: How Halloween has changed over the past 100 years

Stacker has compiled a list of the ways Halloween has changed over the past 100 years, from how we celebrate it on the day to the costumes we wear. We’ve included events, inventions, and trends that have changed the way Halloween has been celebrated over time. Many of these traditions have been suppressed over time. But just like fake blood on a rug, every element of the Halloween story left an impression that we can see today.
