Grinches beware... the Christmas lights are going up now

Dublin Grinches won’t be happy to see the Christmas lights going up this early.
This picture, taken by Karen Berry, shows Christmas lights being put up on Duke Street in Dublin City Centre yesterday.
Even the most committed Christmas lovers must be wondering why they couldn’t just wait til after Halloween.
Still, we can’t be too surprised; Brown Thomas have been showing off their Christmas stock since August and selection boxes are popping up in local shops as the days get shorter.
Maybe we all just want to be more organised and get the shopping done earlier, but you can’t help feeling like Ireland in October could do with a chill pill.
