Couple this with the fact that Hanukkah is starting in November (Thanksgivukkah, anyone?) and you've got yourself a perfect maelstrom for a rushed holiday shopping season.
But retailers are making up for lost time by kickstarting the season earlier than ever.
The best deals will happen sooner than later, so early-bird shopping is critical.
