NEVER too early. I say start in January!   Grin Ha!

 I am hard pressed to choose a favorite from among these fellows... all too adorable, I'm afraid.  I love the magnet idea.  Might have to knock that off....  Tongue

Not too early at all. My local supermarket put up Christmas trees this week.  I love your nutcracker.
