It's Christmas time in Hollis Queens, Mom's cooking chicken and collard greens, Rice and stuffing, macaroni and cheese, And Santa put gifts under Christmas trees -- RUN DMC.

Yea cue the music we're ready for the holiday blitz aren't you?

Fox 2's Jason Carr is noticing what retailers certainly notice: 100-days before Christmas. (as of 9/17)

Are people really ready for 24-hour radio stations playing yule tides?  Jason pays a visit to Fox 2's Jay Towers at this other place of work, Fresh 100.3, to get a little insight into this question.

Play the video to see Jason's report on the state of Christmas in September.
