OMG: Less than 100 days until Christmas

Posted: Updated:

It's Christmas time in Hollis Queens, Mom's cooking chicken and collard greens, Rice and stuffing, macaroni and cheese, And Santa put gifts under Christmas trees -- RUN DMC.

Yea cue the music we're ready for the holiday blitz aren't you?

Fox 2's Jason Carr is noticing what retailers certainly notice: 100-days before Christmas. (as of 9/17)

Are people really ready for 24-hour radio stations playing yule tides?  Jason pays a visit to Fox 2's Jay Towers at this other place of work, Fresh 100.3, to get a little insight into this question.

Carr also heads to the stores and the post office in search of the 'spirit', any signs?

Play the video to see Jason's report on the state of Christmas in September.

For some interesting facts about when the holiday retail season really begins (it's now by the way) read a special report provided to Fox 2 by University of Detroit Marketing Professor Michael Bernacchi, CLICK HERE>>
