I'm starting to see Halloween magazines out:

Better Homes & Gardens Fall Baking
Taste of Home Halloween
Pillsbury: Your Best Ever Halloween

Next week's releases:
Better Homes & Gardens Halloween Tricks and Treats 8/21
Phyllis Hoffman Celebrate Halloween

Christmas release dates for other BHG titles:
Holiday Crafts 7/31/12
Holiday Baking 9/11/12
Christmas Ideas 9/18/12
Holiday Recipes 9/18/12
Christmas Cookies (9/18/12)
Food Gifts 9/18/12
Country Home Holiday 10/16/12
100 Best Cookies 10/23/12

BHG also runs the 100 Days of Holidays online - it's basically a daily email that goes through Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years. Each day covers a different topic and has links to pictures and archives from past issues. Sign-up for this year should begin in September...I will post a link once it's up, but you can check out the archives at http://www.bhg.com/holidays/

I haven't seen publication dates for Martha Stewart Halloween or Christmas, but you can sign up for her email newsletter Holidays and Celebrations (Every Wednesday) on her website
http://www.marthastewart.com/holidays
it's on the right hand side of the page.

Enjoy! and please share if you see others!

I saw the BHG Holiday Crafts magazine at the grocery store today. I had my hands full, so didn't get a chance to look thru yet.

I get the holiday emails from BHG. It was fun to get some Christmas craft emails during Christmas in July. I love getting holiday email during my work day!

Can't wait to get that first holiday magazine!

I saw my DDIL doing this -- and I'm going to do it too. When she was standing in line at the grocery store, flipping through magazines, if she saw something she wanted to create or cook -- she took a picture of the magazine page and cover with her cell phone and put the magazine back. Then she would go to their website and see if the directions, recipe, etc. were online so she could download it. So much cheaper than buying the magazine.

I Picked up the Christmas Ideas over the weekend. Then also got my Family Circle and Womans's day with the Halloween covers :) YAY!!! I'm way late in putting my notebook together, which is where I usually have my magazines.. So I started that too :)

Hi kakelady. I have not seen any magazines here yet. I usually buy one or two from the States when I see them. It won't be too long I hope, before the stores are filled with choice.
