Halloween? For real?

It starts earlier and earlier every year. While the smoke is still clearing from the fireworks, stores are quickly putting up Halloween decorations. Can we close out summer first and maybe see a little credit be given to Fall?

I saw this store in Shreveport yesterday driving to Breathe Yoga for my barre class. It's on E. 70h Street next to Shoe Carnival. It looks like Stage closed and is now a Halloween store.
