It's September and already the C word has been dropped...Christmas!
As early as a fortnight ago local shops have been sprinkled with Christmas gear.
It feels like it happens earlier and earlier each year, but it hasn't hit full force just yet.
So far we've spotted a massive Christmas display in Myer, and Spotlight in Garbutt had a few stands of Chrissy decos popping up this month.
Congrats to the people organised enough to already be ticking off the Christmas shopping!
