I have also started thinking more about christmas recently especially as I know school here reopens in a couple of weeks. When they go back halloween/christmas will be in the shops.

Once the cold weather begins I love the smell of wood fires burning ( I wish I had one)! I look forward to seeing all the decorations in the shops, finding new little treasures to add to my collection, gift hunting, mulled wine, festive treats at the bakery/coffee shops, walks in the crisp air and fallen leaves and the overall planning and preparing.

I look forward to celebrating Halloween and bonfire night. The day after halloween is like my official pre season start !

Finding MMC has added to my enjoyment of the festive season!

It happens to me, too! There's so much Christmas stuff in July going on and then August hits and it starts to feel really real. From September onward, it's a blur! I have to take hte time to get ahead of things in August... finding recipes, buying gifts, etc!

Me too! I thought it was just me. But what I think triggers it is the pending arrival of the fall season. I start celebrating on September 1st my favorite time of the year: The 'Ber Months. September though December. To me it's all the holiday season! The weather changes, leaves start to fall, clouds get gray and lower in the sky, things start to die and it's harvest time. The days get shorter and darkness creeps in. And with that brings the cozy feelings of being nestled inside with my family. I start to decorate for the fall at the end of August and get rolling on Halloween in mid-September. After that we slide right into crisp cold weather and Thanksgiving. By now the leaves are just about gone and, if we're lucky we start getting some snow. A few days before Thanksgiving I put my tree up as it takes about 19 hours to do (a few days). By Thanksgiving night I am all ready, as Elton John says, to step into Christmas!

I love Autumn and the "Brr" months as well. As soon as August hits and school begins, then bits of the spirit start kicking in. Cooler temps will be here soon, and the days are already getting shorter. - I can't wait for brisk temps, crunchy leaves, pumpkin flavored everything, hot chocolate, and baking tasty goodies. - I have already gotten a couple of small gifts too, I just couldn't help myself.

Bring on all the sites, sounds, smells, and emotions, of my favorite time of year!

Edited to add: I also start hanging around here more often! Haha!

Right now I have the Fall itch going on ... yearning for the slightly warm/chilly days and even chillier nights. Cant wait to decorate for fall, go picking for apples and pumpkins, bake all kinds of fall favorite goodies and ohhh that fresh apple cider and pumpkin flavored coffee. Yes Christmas is on my mind since I have already started writing out gift ideas, picked up a few christmas gifts and the kids are working on their wish list but .... thoughts Fall, Halloween and Thanksgiving have taken center stage

I think the fall itch is worse this year due since Hurrican Sandy messed up Halloween for us last year. We still had halloween but until several days later and we had to take down our outside fall/halloween decor before she hit and we didnt have time to put it all back up afterwards.

Pumpkin flavoured coffee? Haven't tried it but oh, I would love to. It sounds so yummy! ^^ And I really wish you and your family this Halloween to be super excited and your Holidays peaceful. :]
I personally feel very Christmassy today. Besides that I've been listening to Christmas radio all day, some great ideas of Christmas gifts came into my mind. Love that feeling of suddenly having great ideas. <3

The Christmas Itch hits in August. A little here and there when I least expect it. That having been said, I am not ready for Summer's warmth to pack it in for the season, yet.
