It's only one day past Halloween (with trick or treating still to come), but it's already starting to look a lot like Christmas around the Sewickley area.
Yup, the early birds no longer wait until Black Friday to do their holiday shopping.
This year, Black Friday is on Nov. 23, but big retailers and mail-order companies are starting well in advance. Amazon, for example, is beginning its Black Friday on Nov. 14. Step into the local Target, Bed Bath & Beyond or Lowe's and you'll see a full array of Christmas items.
Some people, no doubt, will be purchasing gift cards from the most popular establishments in the Sewickley area, listed as our Sewickley Patch 2012 Readers' Choice Award Winners.
Crazy or crazy smart?
