Sure, you've come to expect Christmas merchandise filling store shelves before Halloween has faded into the pre-winter darkness.
But this year, Santa Claus arrived at Lehigh Valley Mall on Veterans Day - Nov. 11. Similarly, you'll find Santa is also ready for his close-up at Palmer Park Mall near Easton and at South Mall near Allentown.
The Promenade Shops at Saucon Valley are following a more traditional calendar. Santa will arrive in Center Valley for a tree-lighting event on Nov. 26 - the Saturday after Thanksgiving.
