I’m sure we all know this by now: Halloween takes over stores’ shelves weeks, if not months, in advance of the actual the holiday. In fact, just yesterday I decided to check out TJ Maxx, and I’d hardly stepped foot in the door before a wave of pumpkin spice candles and spooky decor hit me — and Halloween is almost two months away! As much as I told myself I didn’t need anything, I have to admit: It was next to impossible to resist the festive mood.

If we’re going to start planning for Halloween so far in advance, who’s to say we shouldn’t start preparing for the winter holidays right now, too? Trust me, once Halloween does come around, Thanksgiving and all of the December holidays will be here before you know it.
