Is It Too Soon?

Last night I was relaxing and watching some mindless TV. During many of the commercial breaks I saw Christmas commercials. You know snow, the twinkling lights and the subtle holiday music. I couldn't believe my eyes. October isn't even over yet. Heck, It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown isn't even supposed to air until tonight (ABC 8p).

I love the holiday season, but I'm not quite ready. Charlie Brown's little sis, Sally couldn't have said it better, "Tricks or Treats only comes once a year. You owe me restitution." There should be some law that says the holiday season cannot be advertised until Halloween is over. Right now I want to be spooked not merry and bright.

What do you think? Too soon to start holiday commercials? Have you seen any yet? Feel free to comment below.

I do agree with you about not advertising for Christmas and such until Halloween is over. But people could all use something to look forward to, much like those stores looking forward to people spending money this year. Haven't you noticed the rise in lay-away?

Thanks for the comment Daniel! With the economy I'm not surprised for the early advertising I just wish they could wait until November 1st. Seeing Santa and the elves alongside pumpkins and ghosts just doesn't seem right. I have definitely noticed the attention on lay-away. Reminds me of when I was a little kid and my mom put Christmas gifts on lay-away. Good idea then, good idea now!
