BURLINGTON (CBS) – The holidays have arrived – at least at the Burlington Mall. Halloween is barely in the rear-view mirror, but Santa has already set up shop.

CBS Boston’s Michael Hurley snapped a picture of the holiday display on Friday. Santa Claus, Christmas trees and holiday decorations are all in place.

According to the Simon Malls website, the Burlington Mall is the first of its locations in Massachusetts to get Santa. The holiday display there was up the day after Halloween last year, too.
