What's your first sign of Christmas 2012?

I've been keeping an eye out in Hobby Lobby, and sure enough, within just the last few days, they're starting to roll out the Christmas and Fall decorations!

I went in there on Thursday, not expecting to find anything out yet, but in the very back of the seasonal section of the store, there was an aisle where they were JUST starting to put out Christmas items! One side of the aisle was filled with Christmas ribbons and mesh, the other side was nowhere near filled up yet. They were in the middle of putting in Christmas tree decorations on that side (not the ornaments, but stuff like fake figs, acorns, and sugerplums).

I had no money, so I resolved to come back on Friday and buy a little something, to commemorate the start of "getting ready for the holidays!" So I went back in the next day, and found out they had just overnight started to bring out Fall decorations as well! All they had out was just an endcap (aka "end of the aisle") display (not even a full aisle was set aside yet)! The endcap was filled with little ceramic squirrels and scarecrows, for decorating a shelf!

I went ahead and bought one little scarecrow, and a fake sugarplum for the Christmas tree. I'll post pics soon if I can!

But it looks like the 2nd half (and best half!) of the year is just about here, and I know other stores will be following suit soon! Has Hallmark got their ornaments out yet?!?

And what's your first sign of Christmas this year (if you've seen one yet)?!?
