Selection boxes have been replaced by Easter Eggs in some Irish supermarkets, three months before Easter.

The festive period is now well and truly over as shops start preparing for Easter which falls this year on April 16.

People took to social media to express the madness.

One Twitter user wrote: "We've waved goodbye to Christmas and there are already Easter eggs in the shops."

In JC Savages in Swords, the staff have made a tradition of selling Easter eggs in mid-December.

On Facebook they wrote: “You know it’s Christmas in Dublin When JCs get the Easter Eggs in!! Continuing our long running Christmas tradition.

“Ideal for Kris Kringles or novelty pressies (OR JUST GREAT BIG CHOCOHOLICS LIKE ME!)”

A Tesco spokesperson said: “We stock a small range of Easter eggs from early January to cater for customers who prefer to stock up early or to buy them over a period of time to help spread the cost.

“The full Easter Egg range will arrive in all stores at a later date.”
