Halloween isn't over yet and Christmas is nearly two months away but decorations for the joyful season can already be seen around the Big Country.
Some people in the Big Country may be wrapping up trick or treating, but if you look around at some businesses and stores, you'll find Christmas decorations hanging to ring in the season. It's around this time each year that major store chains clear out Halloween and, in some cases, Thanksgiving decorations and replace them with those for Christmas. In years past, shoppers nationwide have spent more than $6 billion dollars on Christmas decorations. That's a concept that stores hope for each year. While the idea of seeing Christmas decorations in October may seem ridiculous to some, others say it's never too early to begin celebrating the joyous holiday.
