The Return of Christmas

I remember during the last few Christmas seasons, commenting to my DH about the lack of Christmas commercials/programs on television. Oh, sure, there were a few but nothing like what I remembered as a child. When I was growing up in the 70's/80's, nearly every product had a Christmas commercial and nearly every commercial ran in the months of Nov/Dec had a Christmas theme or some Christmas tie-in. It just seemed that, lately, Christmas commercials have slacked off in a major way...DH agreed.

BUT, this year we've already noticed a huge return of the Christmas commercial. I was watching tv this morning before work and counted something like 10 Christmas commercials within an hour.

I've noticed that in the UK this year as well so far. I wonder if it's a marketing thing because of the credit crunch. You'll spend more if you think there's a 'christmas' tag to it...

I thought the very same thing. I figured with the economy being the way it is nearly everywhere, advertisers are suddenly deciding that Christmas really isn't such a bad thing if it can boost sales.

I feel like the christmas season has started because I am seeing ALLOT of christmas commercials. I was looking on the videos on here at allot of the old ones. I loved the Coke commercials with the trucks lit up with Santa on them. Or Santa riding the norelco razor.
