Although the calendar still stays September, I've already started seeing houses decorated for Halloween.  Should I be jumping on the Halloween bandwagon or is it too soon to decorate for Halloween?

This is the first year I've seen decorations out this early in Central New York.    I don't mean in stores.  Those have been out since early summer, as has much of the Halloween candy.  While I enjoy decorating for Halloween, normally I don't do that until mid-October.  But when your kids are picking out cute pumpkins and window decals from the Dollar Store, you start getting in the Halloween spirit too.

Some of my neighbors already have fall flower arrangements on their doors, but so far nobody in my neighborhood  has any Halloween stuff up.  Should I be the first or is it still simply too soon?  When will you put up Halloween decorations?
