Um, Santa aren't you a bit early?

JUST what was needed to be reminded of in the middle of summer - the Christmas shopping season is now on.

A full 151 days before his big night out, Santa was in London yesterday to open the Harrods festive department.

It is the earliest launch of the store's 8,000 square foot department Christmas World which it hopes will be a big hit with tourists coming for the Olympics.

David Miller, the director of Harrods Home, said: "As unusual as it may seem to open a Christmas department so early on in the year, the department is always one of our most popular and requested for by shoppers who want to buy decorations as souvenirs or gifts."
