I was amazed when my wife and I went into the store this afternoon and were amazed at all the fall decorations and even Halloween decorations. I guess I shouldn't be surprised given that everything Christmas comes out just before Columbus Day. Speaking of Christmas have you started your Christmas shopping?

Early Christmas shoppers stats:

  • 33% of American adult shoppers in a recent survey have started their holiday shopping
  • A very organized 0.1 percent said they had already completed their holiday shopping
  • 49% of those who had already made purchases had done so in bricks and mortar stores, 13 percent had made their purchases online
  • 38% had used both channels to purchase holiday gifts
