It's summer and nearly 100 degrees, isn't it too early for retailers to sell Halloween decorations?

I get that Halloween is a big deal for some. They are those that love the holiday as much or more than Christmas, Thanksgiving, or any other holiday for that matter. Over the weekend I had to run to the store to grab a few things when I saw this huge display out front.

I know we say it every year but doesn't it seem that the holiday displays go up in stores earlier than the year before? Christmas trees are now being sold before Halloween. It's all very confusing and ridiculous. There's not been a hit of cooler weather. There's not been a single regular season football game at any level. It's nearly 10 weeks until Halloween. Do we need that long of a shopping season to pick out a costume and a jack-o-lantern for the front porch?

What do you think? How early is too early for Halloween decorations to hit Grand Valley store shelves? Shouldn't we at least wait until after Labor Day? If we agree that should be a rule, why not make it law? I'll sign the petition if someone whats to pull one together.
