What do you get when you pour boiling water down a rabbit warren?

Hot, cross bunnies.

I thought you could buy those things year round.

I've always associated hot cross buns with winter, not easter. But I suppose those in Oz are upside down on a lot of things.

Eh, that's not as bad as seeing all of the Valentines Day junk in big box stores before it was even the new year.

I first read this as "Easter Pasties" and was quite concerned.

This is the first I have heard of hot cross buns connected with Easter. Is it an American thing? I see them all years in stores.

I thought it was an English thing.  I, for one, have never seen a product labelled with the term "Hot Cross Bun".  At any time of year.

That said - I really get annoyed by Christmas crap going on sale before Halloween, so I understand their annoyance.

I don't get what all the biatching is about  If they put out Christmas, Valentine or Easter stuff on the shelves months in advance, it's not like you have to buy it then.  Quit your damn biatching and keep walking past it.

We already have Christmas saturation. Might as well move on to other consumption heavy days.

Was down in Melbourne in October, they already had their xmas stuff out and a small section of Halloween stuff including pumpkins too (the American kind, no the wacky aussie kind), no idea where they got those. Thankfully in America we have Thanksgiving and St. Paddy's to buffer ourselves from horridly annoying displays.

This is important because, at the Last Supper, Jesus served hot cross buns and Tim Tams.

Valentine's stuff was out at the local Walgreens by Jan 1.  Was funny, two fat women were biatchING to the employee because the Valentine's candies weren't out yet on Boxing day.

I thought stores just moved a wall panel and pushed out the same pallet of Peeps and Paas they've been selling since 1953.
