September 10 is certainly a new record in "earliest I heard Christmas music in a store." Granted it was Costco which does not *have* overhead music, but still, they had Christmas decorations out front and one of the musical things was plugged in and playing Christmas carols so I think the charges will stick.

Even the craft stores, which are always ahead of the curve (on the sometimes-dubious defense that people theoretically begin handmade holiday gifts six months in advance), have the Halloween stuff going still. Costco has already moved that to back-of-the-store-seasonal (and, I am happy to report, the motion-sensor part of the talking skeleton was turned off, probably by the person in the HVAC-installation booth across the aisle.)
