The signs are all around us.
The Rockettes Christmas Spectacular will start on November 9.
At Saks Fifth Avenue, the lightshow is not on yet but they’re already setting up.
Some retail stores, like Old Navy in Times Square, already have holiday decorations out.
If you have Sirius XM you can already start playing holiday tunes 24/7 on the Hallmark radio channel.
