There is always a small Christmas display at the State Fair.
Here is a decorated Christmas tree I photographed there during our visit yesterday.




A closer view:

I brought my camera with me on a short trip to the Rideau Centre. The Bay (a Macy's-like store) always has a few Christmas decorations up mid-to-late October in the catwalk that connects the store with the Rideau Centre. With the sole purpose of viewing and photographing the decorations, I brought my trusty camera!

Here are some photos!
The entrance:


One of the trees on display:


Another tree!:


That is all for now. Hopefully I will find more to contribute sometime in the near future! Only two more months until Christmas Eve!

Brent, those ceiling decorations are similar to the ones our Belks store used last year.
This year they are completely different. Will post a photo soon.

Great thread!! Looks like I need to make a trip to Raleigh soon. It's about time for another trip to The Christmas Shop and The Christmas Mouse at OBX too, so I'll try to snap some photos to post.

Christmas decoration above the christmas card section of the biggest department store of the Netherlands in Rotterdam:

I like this way of suspending christmas cards with baubles in between!

They also had a tiny secton of really cute christmas decorations, with really tiny christmas ornaments, baubles, christmas crackers, glittery reindeers etc. Very cute all :p (after one picture, they asked me not to take pictures, so only one pic :p )


Will go again soon, have seen many more christmas blossoms :D Love this thread!

How Wonderful Kerstig !!! Very nice !

The following 3 seasonal images are brought to you by our local Wal-Mart store.
(No store decorations out yet but as you can see, their Christmas merchandise section is in full swing!)

Some of you may remember my complaints on the 2009 thread about my local malls not having any Christmas decorations. I actually complained to the Customer Service Lady at my closest mall, I was so disgusted.

Lo! Today I went into the mall where I had made my complaint, and was greeted by these;



Not the best phone-camera in the world, but it got me a picture without being noticed. I made sure I walked over to Customer Service, and let them know how much I liked the decorations. Hooray for Christmas at the Mall! :yahoo:

Santa's Village awaits the arrival of the Big Guy.

I note from the activities board at the mall that he is set to arrive on November 13 - the very day our Christmas Season starts!!
(Do you think maybe he reads this thread??)

Beautiful, Crown!

Was at the mall here on Friday for a quick second. No sign of any Christmas preparations... With the exception of the in-store decor and advertisements, of course. I am sure they will start preparing for the Big Guy following the 11th.

My Sister and I usually attend the Christmas open house for a Home and Garden Center near where she lives called Donzell's. These are some pics I snapped while we were there on Sunday ! (They are a little small but if you click on them they get a little larger)

Every year I talk about the ladies night/Christmas room at the Hardware store - where they turn the garden center into a Christmas wonderland. Well this year I snapped a few pictures of the "room" - they don't do it any justice, but here ya go:
