Dollarama stores in Toronto are already selling Christmas decorations

While summer in Toronto is sadly coming to a close, we still have a few more months before the extreme cold weather hits and everything turns white — but you wouldn't know it from walking down a Dollarama aisle.

It's no secret that Christmas decorations often show up quite early in Toronto stores, but this year Dollarama is getting an even earlier head start on the holiday by selling a variety of crafty Christmas items in September. 

A number of Toronto residents have spotted the themed products on shelves in Dollarama stores and have taken to social media to share photos, with some saying they saw decorations in stores as early as the first week of August.

Understandably, many feel that it's simply too soon to be looking ahead to December when September just started, especially considering we still have Thanksgiving and Halloween to get through first.

But Dollarama isn't the only store that appears to be getting a head start on selling products for the holiday season — as Christmas decorations have also been spotted in Costco stores in Toronto. 

Considering the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the fact that Toronto is currently thinking of cancelling trick-or-treating, it's difficult to imagine what holiday celebrations will look like by the time Dec. 25 actually rolls around. 

Still, there's no distraction quite like (excessively) preparing for the most wonderful time of the year.
