Christmas lights up in the town centre of Rochdale & Drake street this morning, and we are in the festive month of September.

They go up premature every year. The lord's son was born in March, not December. December 25th was the day that was celebrated because the nights got shorter from then.
EDIT: A link to go with it.
I'm Catholic myself, and I agree with this article - it doesn't matter which day we celebrate his birth. I just thought I'd point out it's very unlikely he was born Dec 25th, even according to the bible.

Hey at least you don't pay your taxes to a council that waits until the last minute to put up non-suggestive "Festive" lights so as not to offend minority communities. (Whom if the council had bothered consulting with, would find are not offended by them)

Does Christmas come earlier north of Watford Gap?
I knew that 'up north' is a long way from here but I didn't realise it was in a different time zone!
