DENVER - If you have stopped by Hobby Lobby lately you may have noticed it is Christmas time already.

According to Hobby Lobby manager Gene Nelson, his staff spent Thursday fluffing the Christmas trees and organizing the holly.

Customers can expect decorations to be available for the Christmas in July sale.

Many customers buy items to make crafts they sell around the holidays, while others just like to get a head start on their shopping.

Nelson said Christmas decorations make up about a third of every shipment sent to stores from now until December.
