A lot of us claim not to celebrate holidays early, but retailers wouldn't put out Christmas items unless consumers bought them. Right?

I'm a true believer that October is for Halloween, November is for Thanksgiving and December is for Christmas. BUT...I've been walking down the Christmas aisle in Costco sense July. I am also aware that there are 70 days until Christmas, and I am thrilled about it. Christmas is coming and I'm not disappointed that retails stores are putting out Christmas items!

18% of retailers, surveyed by Hay Group, put put Christmas items last month and 65% of retailers will go wall to wall Christmas right after Halloween.
