Signs of the season: Christmas retail hits the shelves

Signs of the season: Christmas retail hits the shelves

As cooler weather moves into Tennessee, the first signs of Christmas aren't far behind.

In Gatlinburg, scarecrows and pumpkins sit next to Santas and snowmen. Christmas is still more than two months away, but the ads have already hit TV and the retail world is ready for early shoppers.

Stacy Gore, visiting from Georgia with her family, said it's an early reminder of an already stressful season.

"We don't want to see Christmas, we can't afford Christmas!" she laughed.

New snow machines at Ober Gatlinburg help kickstart season

After a warm 2011-2012 winter in East Tennessee, hurting profits for the area's only ski resort, Ober Gatlinburg is not taking any chances this year for a good season.

"To get our tubing open early for guests that want to experience it that can't come later in the year, by opening tubing earlier for them," said Jerry Huskey, a spokesperson for the resort.

With a lofty goal of opening tubing by Thanksgiving, Ober Gatlinburg is already making snow on that trail -- something they could not do in the past during this time of year.
