    Please tell me I'm not alone

    In thinking this is too early (Sept. 18 ) for this to be on display at my local Wal Mart.

    Way too early in my opinion. One season, one holiday at a time.

    When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."

    I don't know about their holiday stuff but the walmarts around here only stock winter clothes during the summer months and summer clothes during winter months.

    It DOS kind of make one think they just stepped through some kind of nefarious time-warp, doesn't it ?

    No Halloween stuff on display until the day after Labor Day. No Thanksgiving decorations until after Halloween, and positively no Christmas displays until the day after Thanksgiving. (Notice that I didn't call it by it's infamous sale name?)

    I'll agree with TrucksNCoffee on time frame for holidays.

    On the same subject, a local retailer near me had their Halloween plastic jack o'lanterns out, with a CHRISTMAS TREE behind them on LABOR DAY weekend! Good grief, what happened to the proper time for the holiday?

    I remember when September was all about the arrival of Fall, October was about Halloween, November was Thanksgiving, then December was Christmas. It has been decades, at least, since I have seen any Thanksgiving displays, and Halloween and Thanksgiving NOT being bypassed by Christmas.

    I don't take my holiday cues from retailers but it is irritating to see the out of season commercials on TV. Last year I remember starting seeing Christmas commercials in September! You know, the one with the red and green wrapped Hershey Kisses playing some holiday hand bell song. Very annoying.
