Yesterday (August 25) I spotted the first stacks of Christmas goodies (marzipan stollen and gingerbread) in my local supermarket (Germany).

Is this a world record?

Christmas stuff obviously not hristmas, Doh
It's probably last years stock!

No!! Last March one of the local pubs was advertising their off-licence shop - saying shop early for Christmas and they were taking orders.  Agh.

Also, the shop on the corner near where I work has a  shelf that has Christmas stuff on it the whole year round, it's terrible!

Our local Spar is selling roasting trays with Xmas designs all over them.
today while shopping I saw many-a-christmas card
They are already playing Christmas music in our local supermarket and tomorrow we are having turkey for dinner. 
2 years ago our bank HSBC put up a huge Xmas tree complete with baubles and fairy lights..In July!  We asked the assistant manager "Why" His reply? To get the customers into a "A think about Xmas expense mode". Somone informed the local newspaper who took a pic of the tree,complainant and manager. The tree was taken down by order of HSBC's head office. July,I ask you!
