leave a comment »

Every year it seems to me that christmas gets earlier and earlier. I have noticed that before Thanksgiving, there were christmas commercial on already. The two most popular would be for cars are jewelers. I was searching the web for some articles on this topic. This first article gives some background on the topic.
This next article talks about how gap tried to stay away from christmas but is failing to do so because of the recession. I thought it would be a good idea to bring up the holiday because we were just talking about advertising. However, my main thought on this is about Christmas Songs. I wonder if playing those songs trigger something in the mind that makes people want to shop and buy. I do feel like it triggers the mind which is why they start playing these songs right after Thanksgiving. However, I have yet to find an article on it, but if anyone does please post it up.
