Now that it 's October, it seems a little less rushed to say the words "Christmas shopping" out loud.

The other day, Diane and I were at a local store picking up a few things, and sure enough, she saw something perfect for a few people on her holiday list and she bought them. Her Christmas shopping had begun.

I would never think of starting this early, but the minute Diane picked up those things, I started feeling like I was falling behind. I know the old story that Halloween isn't even here yet, but let's be honest. We all know Christmas will be here in about 5 minutes. So what are we waiting for?

Let us know if you've gotten the season started early this year. Take the poll! And if you want some shopping tips, check out some Liz suggestions.
