(KMOV.com) -- This Saturday, Santa will be at the Mid Rivers Mall in St. Peters.

If you think Christmas traditions are moving up the calendar year after year, you’re not crazy. It’s called “Christmas creep” as it creeps up the calendar earlier and earlier.

Some retailers tell News 4 it will help them this year because there’s a shortened traditional shopping season.

Others say it’s not worth the hassle.
