|Toys R Us, 9/16/14. Front of the store, right beside the Halloween Merchandise|
|It's September, so it's no surprise the Lego Store was eager to devote their front window display to their new Christmas offerings. 9/19/14|
|K-Mart, just getting started on 9/9/14. Even with a significant portion of their shelves bare, there's already a respectable selection available.|
|Fred Meyer, 9/6/14. The front line in the battle of the holidays. Word to the wise: don't bet on Halloween.|
Of course, there's no reason you can't go out and see for yourself. The stores in these photographs are chains located all over the country - I'm sure you can find similar sights in your own hometown. Just take care: Christmas has acid for blood, and it's very, very hungry.
