Yes I know it is June Laughing ! But I remember last year sometime in the summer Hobby Lobby started putting out Christmas in their stores. I also remember there being a couple others that put stuff out right after that... (and yes I agree it is too early-except when you need to start shopping for Advent swaps! LOL!) Laughing

So does anyone remember when they first saw Christmas in stores last year?

Our stores are pretty conservative- it delayed me finishing up my Advent swap last year until the end... they wait until Thanksgiving here! AARRGGHH. I just want to SMACK those people that say "it's too early".
I say, Put it all out! Smile I have ADVENT SWAPS to shop for.

I asked the girl at Hobby Lobby today when she thought they would put it out and she said JULY 5TH (right when they tear down 4th of July stuff!)... Her comment was "don't you think that is insane and way too early!" I just smiled at her and said "well some people have reasons to start shopping that early!" Cool

I can't wait..!!! Just over a month! woo hoo!

SNRP- where are you seeing it? Smile

Craft shops have it out quicker than elsewhere because people need to time to create.

I know we had some things out in June/July in K-mart and Target for Christmas in July last year here in Perth. I will be hoping this year as I threw my tree in the rubbish bin after last year as it was old and decrepid....it would be nice to get a new one for Christmas in July.

I will also be making a stop to our Year Round Christmas store for Stocking Swap and Advent gifts!

Hobby Lobby in Plano, TX has started putting the Christmas ribbons out. Hallmark should be up and running by July 12-13 when the ornaments premiere. Garden Ridge has some Hello Kitty, Simpsons and other character ornaments out toward the back of the store. Most departments stores will start right after Halloween. Tuesday morning should be starting shortly. That's all I can think of at this moment! Very Happy

I was just thinking that it wouldn't be too long before our Hobby Lobby started putting out Christmas stuff.

I usually just watch for them to start putting their garden stuff on clearence - then I know the Christmas aisles aren't far behind!

And it is also nice to have the ornaments at Hallmark starting in mid-July.

Other than that, it is realy just crafty stuff you see here and there.

Micheals usualy puts out their Halloween stuff really early. But not much Christmas until fall.

Does anybody know a chain named "The CHristmas Tree Shops" - in New England? I think that is the name. I only visited one store once, but it had great things at great prices. Does anybody know if they have Christmas stuff year-round?

I ran to Hobby Lobby on the way home from work to get another scrapbook and to my surprise they were working on putting Christmas ribbons out. And then when I came back by the front rows, I noticed them starting to put out big boxes of ornaments.. I walked past a lady who was shaking her head and said " don't they know it is JUNE for goodness sake?" And my only response was "Yep, I've been waiting months for them to put it out!" Laughing She looked at me like I had three heads..

I guess the girl that told me July 5 was wrong or she meant they would be done putting it out by then!

I wanted to tell that lady in the store "Merry Christmas-- don't you know that Hobby Lobby putting out Christmas signals the start of my Christmas season!!" Very Happy And then walk away humming jingle bells.. LOL!

Rock ON, Christmas365!!! Cool

I will have to try and visit our Hobby Lobby over the next week or two to see what they may be putting out!

They seem to usually lag just a bit behind the earliest rumors I hear every year of Christmas things being put out - but it won't be long now!

I told my MIL about it and she went to look at hers this morning and they were already putting together Christmas trees for their display! Very Happy

And both her store and my store had two rows of fall foliage!
