Halloween Arrives Early in Santa Monica, CA

Every year, it seems Halloween comes earlier and earlier. Used to be that by mid-August one could already see Halloween items displayed in stores.

Last year, 2013, my first Halloween sighting in Santa Monica was at Wilshire West Car Wash, which had Halloween greeting cards on display by mid-August.

This year, 2014, Halloween has already arrived by early August -- specifically, August 8th. That's the day I saw Halloween items on display at Santa Monica's Party Land store on Lincoln Blvd. (Of course, the display was likely set up over the weekend, i.e., prior to August 8th.)

Do you live in another part of Los Angeles County with an even earlier Halloween sighting?
