    Is anyone else annoyed by the advertising for Christmas that began just after Halloween this year?

    ill assume you're talking about the holiday gift guide on apple's web page. i think Chanukah is coming up(not sure how to spell it)around thanksgiving, don't know the exact date, which is pretty soon. so no i don't think its too early to start holiday advertising,. and besides, christmas is just a bit more than a month away, not too early at all.

    I love christmas advertising. It makes days pass quicker because
    I am looking forward to Christmas. I love Christmas. Christmas
    mean presents. I must sound like a 9 year old, but at 15 years
    old, I feel the same way about Christmas as I did when I was 9 :D.

    To directly respond to the thread, no. wdlove, you sound a bit pissed about it. What's up?

    scem, I know that feeling. It's probably one of the greatest holiday feelings you can have. :cool:

    The only difference is I want days to pass slower. That way, I dream morw and more about most likely knowing I will get this thing called... :p

    Ba Humbug! The only advertising that I've really found annoying is the Adam Sandler spots for Eight Crazy Nights. I used to like a lot of his stuff, but the constant advertising for such an obviously annoying and crappy movie is going to send me on an eight night shooting spree!!!!!!!

    The more irritating issue is seeing Xmas items in stores already, and we've not even gotten through Thanksgiving yet. I've actually seen some people with Xmas wreaths on their doors, pathetic.

    It would be nice if Thanksgiving actually came after Halloween, instead of being a single stuff your face day (Ok, weekend) in the middle of the Christmas shopping season...

    But with the need to rake in all the cash from Christmas as possible, the all mighty quest for one more dollar in revenue has killed Thanksgiving.

    Quite sad really. :(

    I haven't found any forcasts for the 'buying' season this year. But it seems to me that with things starting so early that things might be a little lean this holiday. It is sad when it becomes a commercial enterprise instead of what it should be.

    I'm not angry, its just doing it so early it all gets old. The focus of the advertising is the problem!
