By Holiday if you mean Christmas then yes stores do put up displays to early. Many if not most put out Christmas displays before Thanksgiving Holiday weekend.

It ruins the holidays! Hearing Xmas music and endless ads in the fall just piles on the STRESS.

The dollar store has an aisle for Christmas and an isle for Halloween.

I can understand places like Hobby Lobby putting up theirs early, you need to give crafter time to make their items for sale. But, just for the general public, Easter can go up After St. valentine's Day. And Christmas/Chanakkah/Kwanzaa can go up After Hallowe'en. Let's enjoy the previous holiday,1st

I LOVE CHRISTMAAS, and IT. But, I DON'TAPPRECIATE HOW IT'S SO COMERCIALIZED. CHRISTMAS is ABOUT THE BIRTH OF JESUS CHRIST, NOT ABOUT HOW MUCH MONEY WE CAN WASTE TRYING TO OUT DO EVERYONE ELSE!!

Corporate America pushes Christmas earlier and earlier to increase their profits. They don't usually even mention Jesus Christ, they're all about Santa Claus and getting the people to buy gifts for everyone they know. It's a shame so many people go along with it.

Like they're always terrified of missing one early sales opportunity.

It's smart for business as it could generate more sales. They are not concerned with the true meaning of Christmas.

Honestly I'm in the fence on this 1. Some stores do put up items WAY TOO EARLY, but for many stores, the holiday season is their money maker. Without the holidays, they would go under, especially in the new digital age.

I think most people go through life doing the best they can and I give myself the same benefit of the doubt.
