'Why are the Christmas lights up on Oxford Street? It's October 4th, you can't just skip Halloween you heathens,' wrote one seemingly outraged user.

Other users were quick to agree, with one noting: 'As if the Christmas lights have gone up at Oxford Street already. It hasn't even been Halloween yet,' and another adding: 'Erm, it's the first week of October?.'  

'Can't believe the Christmas lights are already up on Oxford street haven't had Halloween or bonfire night yet,' said another, whilst another suggested: 'would be easier to leave them up from last year.'

One user questioned: 'They have put the Christmas lights up on Oxford Street is this a joke???'

Other users did, however, vehemently disagree with the 'scrooges' on social media, with many expressing their delight over the lights.  

'Is it too early to be excited about the Christmas lights on Oxford Street? It's less than a month till they're switched on,' wrote one.

There was a mixed reaction on social media with many users excited about the lights being up and others moaning about it being too early

Another delighted user added: 'Oxford street has its Christmas lights up, and nothing makes me happier,' with another saying: 'Oxford Street has its Christmas lights up already. CHRISTMAS IS COMING!'

Despite the 1,778 gold and silver baubles being installed, they won't officially be switched on until November 6. In past years Kylie Minogue, Robbie Williams and The Spice Girls have done the honour.

There is also an NSPCC campaign running alongside the lights switch-on and members of the public will be asked to donate £5 to dedicate a light to someone special in their lives.
