Is It Too Soon for Christmas Shopping?

Halloween just passed and some stores are already putting up Christmas decorations. Is it too soon to deck the halls or are you ready for the 2012 Holiday Season to begin?

It's an annual question for merchants and shoppers:

How soon is too soon to deck the malls and shopping centers for the Christmas holiday season?

Some stores have already begun the process. Christmas music, decorations and layaway ads can already been seen in the shopping aisle at local stores. Halloween decorations still dominate, but signs of Christmas are already creeping in.

So what do you think?

When is too early for the Christmas shopping season to begin?

Do the decorations and Christmas ads entice you to buy early or make you grit your teeth and wish for more time before the holiday rush begins?

Hijacking the holy celebration of Christmas for financial gain is deplorable. We shouldn't need Christmas decorations and music to be enticed to buy presents for the ones we love. I was a child when 'A Charlie Brown Christmas' debuted, so maybe I was brainwashed a little by it, but Charlie Brown's message is even more relavent today than it was in 1965. Christmas is becoming too commercial.

Too soon for non-stop playing of Christmas carols-yes. Christmas shopping-no.
