Now that Halloween is behind us, retailers like Walmart are fast forwarding past Thanksgiving and are already thinking Christmas.

The retailer is working to give all of its stores across the country a Christmas makeover. The retailer says its stores will have more holiday decorations than ever before. Shoppers will also get to enjoy prerecorded Christmas carols playing over the speakers.

And this year, you won't have to go to the mall to see Santa. Walmart says jolly old Saint Nick will be setting up shop in most stores, providing parents a convenient place to get those precious Santa photos with their kids.

On top of the in-store makeovers, Walmart is also decorating up its website. It is already offering 10 online specials every day leading up to Christmas. The sale items include video games, electronics and toys.
