Christmas comes early

Is this some kind of a record?

The magic of Christmas has arrived in Rochdale, in Lancashire in the UK, with more than four months to go until December 25. Despite the summer heat, festive lights have been appearing on lamp-posts in the town, with other decorations including a giant Noel sign and a Santa Claus.

The council says they have gone up early to celebrate festivals for other faiths, including the Hindu festival of Diwali in October, and local officials claim that putting them up early will also save around £10,000 of taxpayers' money.
