It's September, so we can start talking about fall, school, leaf raking and maybe even Halloween. But Christmas?

Yep, I said it. Christmas. And not only did I say Christmas, but I said Christmas shopping.  I know it's early, but I think once the month names end in 'er', it's getting to be that time of year and it's ok to bring up.

Now, I want to be clear. I'm not trying to rush anything. I'm not asking anyone to put their trees and decorations up yet, I just know a lot of people who don't like the pressure of shopping late in the season, and I'm just curious when the shopping begins.

I'm betting that there are people who have already started. Isn't Christmas shopping in a non 'er' month cheating? And there are others who are still a good 3 months away from getting the shopping started.

So let's find out when Jersey Shore residents get Christmas shopping started. Take the poll and let us know!
