Seasonal candy

Stage three Halloween candy is now on sale. This has me wondering about something. If I leave two month old Halloween candy out for Santa am I insulting him by leaving old candy for him or is it a treat because he's finally getting different candy than he's used to? Santa spent centuries eating pork pies, then milk and cookies, and now, apparently, Christmas candy. But does he get Halloween candy? Or Easter candy? How about a bagel and lox? And would he appreciate it if he got it? Or do his Santa powers come from Christmas foods?
