Holiday Sales

I've been hearing a lot about declining holiday sales, especially declining sales during the shopping season's opening weekend right after Thanksgiving. There is one thing I'm wondering about though. Have people considered that with the Christmas Season starting as soon as the Halloween decorations come down, this might degrade the importance of Black Friday?

Seriously, I started noticing the typical looney holiday shopping behavior well into the middle of November this year. I approached a mall or shopping center and the other cars on the road seem to just drive stupider. People get more aggressive at left turns, etc.

I wonder if anyone has any numbers to check this with...
