    it was for the Rocketts at Radio CIty Music Hall In New York City
    Give me a break, had the air on in my car.
    So what was your first commercial of the year, and what was it for?
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Hallmark Stores have put out a lot of their new tree decorations already. I am thrilled because every year I give one to each of my daughters and have started the tradition for my great niece and great nephew. They are so expensive it is nice to be able to buy them in stages. I understand they have more coming out in October.

    I have not seen any commercials for Christmas -yet- but they have been pushing Halloween since the 3rd wk of August. I sure do miss the good old days when they use to at least wait til after Thanksgiving to push Christmas sales.

    Then they wonder why sales don't meet expectations. They have marketed the holidays to death and they are no longer special - just another day.

    I used to collect Hallmarks, Had over 200 of them, had to sell them in
    a moment of desperation. That killed me.

    I'm looking for "Freezemister or the Hotmister"
    anyone have it and want to sell????

    I would get them for 1/2 off the day after Christmas

    Our Sam's do not have decorations. Not seen any yet. Our stores are really playing up fall decorations and Halloween candy.
    No commercials but I hope they bring back the M & M commercial with Santa, I smiled every time they aired it last year. I also love the Hershey kisses bell ringers. They can get rid of the others. Our kids and Grandkids are grown so not much fun. Our three Great Grands don't live close, Christmas isn't as much fun now.

    I'm not surprised. Back to school sales here started before school even ended for the last term. Last year I couldn't find a pair of shorts in August . . . in my Florida area where it was too hot to wear anything else. I was told to check back in April of the next year. What's sad is that by the time December is here and we want Christmas ornaments, etc. the Valentines Day stuff will have crowded out Christmas.

    The ONLY Christmas commercial that makes sense this early is Radio City Christmas Spectacular/Rockettes because performances start very early November and seats sell out quickly, mostly well in advance. But the stores putting out their holiday merchandise already is crazy. There's Santa standing right next to witches and pumpkins and poor Thanksgiving is shoved aside.

    Our Loews store currently has Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas decorations on their shelves. Also, it was in the high 90's here this week and they set up their display of electric fireplaces. My family laughed when I bought one. LOL

    Thanksgiving is ignored because it is only one day and the stores don't make much money off of it.
    Money is all they (stores) care about.

    isn't it a shame that stores are open on Thanksgiving. It should be a national HOLIDAY.
