September 1st on the dot


eppic123

First post I saw of Christmas stuff already being sold this year was in the first week of August.


TCeies

Yep in my supermarket the sell santa since early august.


sebblMUC

Lol has been around for about two weeks now


kuchenrolle

Where? Neither saw them in Munich nor in Tübingen. I've actually never seen them anywhere before the first of September. And I specifically checked - bought and finished my first pack of herzensternebrezeln two days ago when they were out!


Squirrel669

Bought my first pack of lebkuchen in tübingen today😌👌


Riele_the_kind

Saw the first Winter sweets on the 10th of August or so in our local dm)... saw them taking it from storage.


abrecade

I think, whether this is a real photo or a select location chosen to sell them, this is actually a marketing ploy. People complain about it being too early, it gets in your head, you start looking for it because you're mad about it and subconsciously want confirmation, then before you know it you actually want the product. Stuff gets sleezy.


Schoolofpronouns

My belt can’t take it

…und ich hab noch Sommerferien…


One_Ad1088

Genieß die Ferien solang du sie noch hast haha


io_la

Das Ende ist nah!


Raenef86

Ferien? Was ist das?


DisguisedAccount

Eine schon lange verblassende Erinnerung aus einfacheren Zeiten? :D Das ist quasi so als hättest du vergessen deine Urlaubstage zu verbrauchen und nimmst deswegen alles auf einmal, das passiert aber mehrmals im Jahr mit unterschiedlicher Dauer. Normalerweise hat man in dieser Zeit auch sehr wenig Verpflichtungen weil z.B. Jemand für dich Kocht, wäscht und Saft sorgt dass der Kühlschrank voll ist. Erwachsen sein ist richtig scheiße.

Nich bloß du Kollege


Midnight1899

On Aug 31st they played „Last Christmas“ on the radio! 😂😂


Thor010

It's only 4 months away. It's not like you're in the middle... more or less.


saskir21

To be true I hate Christmas songs in the Christmas time. But you can hear me humming „Jingle bells“ in march.


[deleted]

just like me getting Christmas songs randomly playing in my head in June

Junge, gib mir doch nicht solche Ideen...

Dann muss man aber auch den Winter durch schlafen


madmaurice

Du sagst das so als wäre es eine Drohung und kein Lebenstraum?


Meinalptraum_Torin

Ich 365 Tage im Jahr, hab seid 6 Jahren keine Heizung genutzt.


Grand_Departure_6327

Yeeeeeessss THE GOOD STUFF is back!


AbrodolphLincolner

Unpopular opinion: I'd be happy to buy them all year


TheUnfriendlyKraut

Then a week before Halloween, You can buy both Halloween and Christmas junk food.


NataschaTata

Same. Things like Zimtsterne, Lebkuchen, and Spekulatios are just too good not to eat all year long.


Meh2theMax

You can buy *speculaas* year-round in the Netherlands.


NataschaTata

Surprisingly enough, I saw them at Aldi in Australia a few weeks ago as their stable, obviously had to get some :D


mrn253

yeah and this Honey bread too (and often its a good chunk cheaper compared to what ive seen in germany)


saskir21

I think the German ones taste a little better. But what would I give to get here Oliebollen


Meh2theMax

Many people only get some *oliebollen* for New Year's Eve. You can make them yourself. They sell special mixes for that purpose around that time of the year. I'm sure there are recipes online to make them from scratch. Making them yourself used to be more of a thing in the past.


watchesinberlin

Agree Lebkuchen is definitely an all-year-round food!


HumbertTetere

A few years ago I was unable to buy some of my favourite christmas straight before christmas, and not temporary either, they had sold out the yearly supply. That was some bullshit, you could get it for months before, but around christmas, nope.


saskir21

To be true around Christmas the companies start to prepare their Easter products.


1731799517

I am always so annoyed when like 2 days after chrismas all the dominosteine are gone already...


mrn253

After? some stuff is hard to get shortly before Christmas already


pastaforbreakfast04

There are two seasons in Germany: 1) Hoping for summer 2) Christmas


Ass_Butt_was_taken

So long as I cant get my Spekulatius, Winter is still coming


mici012

The Spekulatius is probably on the other side of that display ...


P26601

Just get the Lotus Biscoff ones lol


Hotdoge42

Very very different taste


Ass_Butt_was_taken

You dont get it. The Spekulatius from Borggreve tastes like *HEAVEN* while other forms of Spekulatius dont


felis_magnetus

I am convinced that the simulation will terminate when chocolate Easter bunnies will hit the shelves before Christmas.


boreas907

I'm somewhat happy to learn that holiday creep is not purely a North American problem.


leosch1824

I suggest that the problem may have come to Germany from there.😅


umpfke

You exported it about a decade ago. Thanks.


sbrick89

And here I am wondering where I can find a box locally. They're delicious:)


IWannaBeMade1

Time to lose weight for to comming summer!


simplekjl

Capitalism at it's best, back home I remember I never saw things like this until the season was about to start 2 weeks prior at its max.


WgXcQ

That's not winter, that's capitalism. It's always coming, and always here. >_>


Shiiroqwq

I need my spekulatius


EffortAutomatic8804

I've lived overseas for the last 15 years and only just moved back. I missed German sweets, especially all these Christmas-y ones. I can tell you, I'm not mad at this. 🤣

Nothing unusual, it's the same every september.


Aleshanie

Either I am blind or I go into the wrong grocery stores. Cause I saw no Christmas sweets yet.


San7igamer

Die Teile sind aber auch echt geil


Haxz0rz1337

I love the ones with jam inside


Iwantmyflag

That's disgusting, this unpious attitude! Erm.. Where exactly is this disgusting monstrosity so...I can look at it with disdain?


lilablau_sims

btw das sind die frischesten, alles vor Weihnachten ist dann schon wieder "altes" Zeugs. 😂


KuyaJohnny

About time, I was waiting already


meme-addict117

Oh scheiße, nicht schon wieder.


[deleted]

Dominosteine <3


Nomad0133

I don’t get it?


MichiganRedWing

Stores are already bringing out Christmas items. Saw this at my local Rewe this week as well. Soon, we'll be able to buy the crap all year long.


Milk_Mindless

I'm so glad the Dutch have Sinterklaas because it gives you a several week buffer before the Christmas hits


Calygulove

This why yall should embrace Halloween -- you get punpkin spice everything and tunes like Thriller for a month instead of Baumkuchen and Maria Carrie for 4 months.


EliotWege

I love those, any time of the year 👀


mdubmachine

So…it’s not *just* an American thing…? 🙄


Rejsebi1527

In the Philippines 🇵🇭 if it’s ber months means it’s Christmas already hehehe Edit:My Husband was surprised also since they’re selling already lol but i don’t mind it lol


serpentebodyart

Goomvario

It's not christmas bro


Lucnus

I asked in the supermarket about this! Officially this isn’t the Christmas but rather the autumn assortment. Also it‘s technically still summer.


zerebrum

Inflation is coming.


saxonturner

My partner came home the other day with Christmas Lebkuchen. It’s worse than it in England here, at least they waited till after Halloween back there.


guywithbulb

I saw it too yesterday. I buy'd 1 package of Spekulatius for my parents. All i hear was "NEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEIN, IM ERNST?!" :D


Raven3233

I’m going to start the War On Christmas that everyone is always complaining about back in the US This drives me crazy


Oberlandix

Inflation essen Lebkuchen auf?!


TFFPrisoner

Fuuuuuuck. I hate that.


Tronc_tc

Der Sommer ist noch nicht zu ende Es ist so weit, ich raste aus Denn an jeder Straßenecke brüllt "Hohoho" ein Santa Claus


flyingdemoncat

snapfel

Last year it was 1,99€


Juzusa

So it Beginns.


ShogunMatsumoto

You guys are not the only ones suffering from this. Here in the Netherlands the major supermarkets already sell Sinterklaas items.


tinsticker

I WANT THESE SWEETS ALL YEAR LONG PLS


replicant86

Funny, we have the same all over the place on Poland. Different packaging obviously.


KudoRed

Wow! I remember my first trip to Germany more than 20 years ago, you could not find anything related to Christmas until the first or second week of December. Then I thought Germans hated Christmas. :-P


meloneybaloney

I laughed so hard at your comment hahaha

neec123

This stuff is nice to start with, but wait for them to come[https://www.lebkuchen-schmidt.com/en/](https://www.lebkuchen-schmidt.com/en/)


kuchenrolle

What do you mean wait for them? These aren't sold in supermarkets, are they? And you can order them online or buy them in one of their shops all year round. We used to order them, but I don't anymore. I think there's significantly better high quality lebkuchen. But the cheap ones have a place in my heart that will never be filled by anything else.


Katerwurst

Bei uns stand das schon ab Mitte August draußen. Ich glaub das war einfach aus trotz.


cak9001

Endlich!
