How Early is to Early?

In a recent visit to a local hobby store this weekend, I went to pick up some model cement for my son's rocket. I was floored to what was displayed in over a quarter of the store, no less in front of the stores by the registers.

Everything on these aisles were perfectly placed on the shelf as if I was walking through the store after closing and ready for a photo shoot. Everything neatly faced, fully stocked and ready to sell.

Now take in consideration that this is the middle of August and what you would think is preparation for “Back to School Supplies". This was nothing related to "Office supplies" or "Back to School Supplies".

What I saw was aisles and aisles of Christmas decorations. Yes, Christmas, from decorative lights, ornaments, even a wide selection of Christmas trees in the middle of a Texas summer heat wave. Personally, my Christmas list is done in December.

So how early do you fill your Christmas list?
