Poll: Is it too early for shops to sell Christmas things?

Halloween hasn’t yet passed, but shops are ploughing ahead with the Christmas displays.

MOST SUPERMARKETS HAVE already begun decking the halls and Halloween hasn’t even passed yet.

For some, advent calendars, tinsel and stacks of quality street tins spark joy and nostalgia, but for others the sight of merry-making in October is maddening.

So, we’re asking you: Is it too early for shops to sell Christmas things?
