It certainly seems like it to me. They had Christmas music playing in WalMart when I was in there last week and greeting cards are already on sale in Barnes and Noble.

I used to work for Wal-Mart, I left about 6 years ago, but even then they set up their Christmas shop at the end of August - beginning of September. It kinda makes you dread the holidays, sometimes.

Nah, seems about the same to me. Christmas stuff usually goes on sale before Halloween stuff. The back to school aisles become the Christmas aisles.
