I voted with in Oct. I know Toys r us starts thier big toy book sale at the end of Oct.
Again it easier budget wise to be able to buy things earlier and it's even better then the toys the kids want are on sale. We try to have most of our Christmas presents bought by Dec 1st. Unfortunately we missed that goal last year and spent a good part of Dec running from store to store. This year our goal to have all the gifts bought by Dec 1st so we can spend the rest of the month doing other activies or just sittting at home relaxing and watching all the great christmas shows on tv.

I would say within the first two weeks of November. That way people can get some ideas what to buy before the big shopping day.

I wish they would advertise Halloween until Oct 31, then Thanksgiving until the day before Thanksgiving, and Christmas until Christmas, followed by Christmasy holiday ads through New Years. I've often wondered why stores don't advertise Thanksgiving.

I chose Nov. 1 because, for me, that's the "official" start of the holiday season and because, as others have pointed out, it's easier for shoppers to get a jump on planning if the ads are out there a bit sooner.
