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.

I have seen the Hallmark Channel Countdown To Christmas promo, and tonight I saw the Pillsbury Crescent roll commercial with the Christmas bells in the beginning.
