A pub has put up its Christmas tree more than three months before Christmas.
Customers at The Beggar's Bushin, Sutton Coldfield, say they are divided over the festive decorations.
Manager Claire McGuire is behind the early festivities at the Greene King-owned boozer in Chester Road.
In olden times (and in Roman Catholic tradition) the tree was not put up until the afternoon of Christmas Eve.
One local said:
Another school of thought says the tree should go up at the start of Advent.
It covers four Sundays before Christmas and begins on the Sunday closest to November 30, the feast day of St Andrew.
