It seems to get earlier every year but the lights have gone up, the adverts are on telly and of course pantos will be here very soon. I'm talking, of course, about Christmas and here in Manchester we've got one of the biggest and the best celebrations.
More a million people are expected to visit the Christmas markets from tomorrow. Traders from home and abroad will descend on the city offering you everything from gluwein to reindeer bells.
It's 14 years since the markets began and we sent Paul Crone to try and get into the festive spirit.
