Christmas Commercials 2013

Yep! They're starting already! - I saw my first Christmas commercials (yes, commercialS!) in the last few days. One was for an annual local Christmas lighting event, and one was for K-Mart layaway featuring a gingerbread man. Woot-woot!


The Werther's Caramel commercials with the little girl going into the candy shop, have been playing for a while now too, and although, not "technically" a Christmas commercial, it always reminds me of one.

You be the Judge Dept: Hallmark Channel started running generic Countdown to Christmas ads, last month. A new one started running this past weekend. Do these count?

Clark has shown a merry disposition
I haven't seen any officially but I have seen negative comments..mostly on Face Book from people who have seen them. It's a different perspective I guess. There are people who feel that it's 'commercializing' Christmas and just a way to try and sell us more unwanted "stuff".

This isn't a TV commercial---but I was happy to see banners advertising the Boston Pops' holiday concerts and The Nutcracker on Boston.com this morning! Those are two signs that the season is approaching.

I have not seen Christmas commercials yet, but have seen an increase in advertising for toys.

Would this be the same one they were showing on Christmas in July for the upcoming holiday season?
