Tis the season, New Jersey. Time to deck the halls in t-shirts and shorts as Christmas has arrived on the doorstep of fall.

Leaves have barely begun to change color yet, and New Jersey retailers are already thinking about jingling those bells. So forget about stuffing the bird, it's time to stuff the stockings.

Now, I'm sure retailers wouldn't do this unless they knew their customers wanted to shop the holidays months in advance. But in my opinion, Christmas in September is just way too soon. Same goes for Valentines in December, or Easter in January.

So let's forget about Halloween and Thanksgiving, it's time to celebrate Christmas in New Jersey. Don't believe me? Let's take a tour through one of New Jersey's big box retailers. And just for reference, this tour was taken the last weekend of summer. Enjoy.
