Have you noticed Christmas items already being sold in local stores? Labor Day 2012

Bignuf Bignuf
We did some Labor Day shopping and were shocked by home many stores (major chains and local shops, both) in the mall already had Christmas displays and sales going. I guess they are hurting so bad for sales they are trying to do anything to "drum up" demand.

Have you noticed this trend where-ever you live?

I used to work at a craft store, I quit like August 10th so that I could start school, and we got our Christmas aisle the SAME week we got up the Halloween aisle. It was ridiculous! And people bought things! D:

Christmas creep. Especially annoying for those of us that don't celebrate the holiday at all.

A few stores here and there have a little of the Christmas stuff out, but for the most part it's all Halloween products in the holiday sections.
Either one is fine with me. xD

That reminds me...I gotta get a better fake raven this year. :3
I'm planning to attach it to an elastic so I can have it sit on my shoulder and I'm going to name it "Nevermore".

Yeah, I heard about a Sam's Club that put up their displays last week.

So greedy...so manipulative...

Not yet for me. And it's a good thing, too, because I'm a huge grinch. Although I'd put up with christmas displays all year if it meant no christmas songs being played over the radio.

I saw Halloween stuff on July 6th, and Christmas stuff popped up a couple of weeks later.

I was at Michael's craft store and they had the Christmas stuff out before the Halloween stuff. And this was a few months ago...

The craft stores putting it up early doesn't bother me, as I need a few months to make some of the items . But, seeing K-mart putting up Christmas items next to the Halloween stuff (which went up before August 15th) was beyond ridiculous.
