We’ve only just had Hallowe’en, bonfire night is not officially until tomorrow and we have 51 days until Christmas.

However, rumours suggest the much anticipated John Lewis advert could air today and House of Fraser has just released its Christmas offering. So does this mean it’s officially Christmas? When does the season officially start for you?
