    Hey MMC!

    Been meaning to start this a couple of weeks ago. Now we are going into the autumn months, Christmas is really going to step up a gear. I’m going to keep an eye out on any early signs of it in the stores over here in England and post up when I can.
    It might not get going until after a couple of weeks but I just wanted to create the thread and add, as and when.
    I’m also inviting you guys and girls to add to this thread as well as I enjoy seeing how the big event unfolds across the world.

    Let’s do this MMC!

    The leaves here in the UK are beginning to change colour, but that's as much the effect of the recent dry spell as it is the quickening autumn, and the nights are visibly beginning to draw in. The season is a-turning!

    Selfridges have already launched their Christmas department and The Works has brought out their Christmas craft section. I also noticed Celebrations and Quality Street chocolate tins at Tesco. These are usually my first signs around August and they are right on schedule this year. I have also noticed a few restaurant adds and banners advertising Christmas bookings.

    Although there are no tangible signs in shops yet, I have have noticed the toy sections expanding and Iceland is encouraging customers to start saving on their Bonus card for Christmas.

    Such an exciting time, I love how it all builds.

    Hobby Lobby pretty much has ALL of their Christmas AND Fall out right now, and I know Old Time Pottery has started putting Christmas out and plans on having all of it out by mid-September. And whenever Target starts putting out Fall (I'm thinking around Labor Day) they always have a corner of Christmas lights in the back of the Autumnal/Halloween section! It's getting closer and closer everybody! <3

    There are MANY reasons why I wish I lived in the UK but places like The Range and Homesense (and Primark) are some of those reasons!

    There's a Garden Centre here in Scarborough (Deans) that has its decs up from the 1st October every year...I drive by every morning / evening and they will soon be taping off the windows whilst they get to work on their display!

    Once the windows are taped up I see the season as officially begun :)
