Time was, when 'The Times' always published a letter from the first person to have heard the first cuckoo of the year.
I think it time to add to this idea of first hearings, or in this case sightings, with the first Christmas decorations of the year.
I claim the honour!
Tonight, 15th October 2006, in Gosling Way, Kennington, London I saw the first Christmas decorations of the year, not only up, but illuminated too; courtesy of Lambeth Council.
Ten weeks before Christmas and lit decorations ~ I think that someone within the council has gone quite cuckoo.
