Garmin ad during a football game....one of their Christmas ads...with the "give a give a give a Garmin" take-off of a the traditional tune...
The Rant: It's not even (bleep) Halloween yet, and they feel it necessary to run Christmas ads. By the time it gets here, I'm already so sick of the ads that I can't wait for Christmas to be over.
Good, glad that is it over.....oh you meant the ranting...lol.
I remember when I was a boy, it didn't start until T'gving day was over. But it gets earlier each year now!
of September (down here), Hobby Lobby had their Halloween, Thanksgiving, AND Christmas Displayed all at one time. By the time Halloween gets here, I will be sick of seeing Christmas displays. Lowe's has their Christmas out, and playing Christmas music full blast. Haven't been in HD yet.
until you can't remember when you was a boy anymore. LOL
You are right three holidays all at the same time, a week after New Years they be into Valentine Day. Do they really think this helps people buy more things?
I wonder who thinks/starts these things?
Does one company start it, then everybody follows because thinking they will miss out?
the more stuff you might buy. Heck, you might even forget you bought something and buy it again 3 months later!
That's why the garmin stock price go up.
I think I read somewhere that a gps is the second most wanted gift the holiday season.
I agree, what happen to the other holidays?? They have had Christmas decorations on sale here since August.
The crazy thing is all the christmas stuff is already on sale- 25% off at Macys! Will there be anything left for black friday? Is anyone making money off the discounts, or is everything so overpriced it needs to be discounted to move off the shelf... I hate this early Christmas advertising too... =(
It's all about money. The first one's with the ads might catch the early bird shopper.
Just don't buy the chocolates. I've seen Christmas chocolates out since the end of September.
I'm with you. Day after Thanksgiving is soon enough for me.
Aaah, for the good old days when the Christmas shopping season began with the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade.
The early sales do help those of us who try to finish our shopping before Advent begins (Dec 2 this year), so we can concentrate on the season.
I'm more like a Dec 20th kind of guy. And, in protest of the crass commercialism, my immediate family has an agreement: No Gifts. And my holiday cards won't go out until mid December at the earliest.
Man after my own heart...
Christmas ornaments have been out at Hallmark stores since July or August.
This year everyone is getting beef jerky for Christmas. I have finally mastered the art of perfect Jerky making so everyone is begging for some.
Those are the type of gifts I like, ones that take thought and personal work.
And I love beef jerky. As much money as I spend on it, I could have bought me a very nice dryer!!!!! and made my own.
I found a professional dryer at a garage sale for $35 it can make about 4 lbs of beef jerky at a time. I just marinade about 8 to 9 lbs of raw meat for 12 hours and then put it in the dryer for about 12 more.
I made a really great batch of Thai spicy beef jerky a few weeks back that everyone loved.
My older sister does canning, so we trade. She gives me the worlds best pickles and I give her some awesome jerky.
Miss Poi aka jerky master
"Welcome to the POI Factory, while you are here in the midst of your travels, take a break with homemade beef jerky and great conversion, the beef jerky is $4.99/10 oz., the conversation is free"
So should we all send you our addresses now? Or wait until after Thanksgiving?
well seeing as we are now at almost 38,000 users there is no way I could crank out that much beef jerky even in a years time.
I was taught that if you don't have enough for everyone then don't eat it in front of anyone.
nice try though
I think COW should get jerky in addition to the icon.
Now that is a fine idea!
How do I get on your Christmas list?
A deceased friend of mine would say jokingly to someone with a gripe, "What's your beef, jerky?"
One radio station here started playing Christmas music the day before Halloween. I've heard of another that started 24 hr a day Cristmas music Nov 1. Wal-Mart and other stores are getting a jump on Black Friday sales by starting their Christmas sales this weekend!
Which reminds me, I need to start looking for a Valentine card for my wife before they are all sold out!!!
work nights at a grocery store. already putting up christmas displays.
I agree with miss poi. I started to cook for christmas in sept. so far I have smoked 21 brisketts and now I'm working on the spare rib so 12 racks and 14 to go for family n friends
Doesn't anyone make Fruitcake for Christmas anymore?
No need to. All the fruit cakes that are needed have already been made, and are making the rounds.
one piece per person, 38,000 pieces. Why that is only 700 or so pieces a day! You should be able to handle that!
Luckily the holiday season started so early, triggering the rant and leaving you plenty of time for jerky making!
I am coming to your house.
Prime ribs, mashed potatos, turnips, green beans, stuffed mushrooms, salad, gravy and Yorkshire pudding.
Mmmmmmmm, mmmmmmmm, I can taste it now!
