The obligatory "why are flaming christmas ads on already!!!!
I was disappointed to see the coke one, I’m normally well into Christmas when I first see it, but 8th nov is too early.
Also, I note that every shop and it’s dog is trying to do a ‘John Lewis’ ad this year, to the point where you don’t know which shop is being advertised…Posted 4 years agomaccruiskeenSubscriber
are they all idiots?
Well they’re still in business so probably not. Personally I don’t really start thinking about christmas until a few days before christmas but I expect I’m in a minority in that respect. Advertisers start advertising when they do, and the shops start stocking when they do because thats when a lot of people start buying for christmas.Posted 4 years ago
Well it’s been done to death here already so you can find other threads to grump about Xmas in.

The clue is the John Lewis one is a cartoon.Posted 4 years ago
I dont fancy streching my xmas budget all the way from november!!!
I can see the retailers point trying to get us to spend money earlier and get us into panick mode but c’mon, I like it when im off work and at home with the wife feeling all festive. Next it will be xmas ads in october!!!!Posted 4 years ago
Thats what the retailers are trying to do though, get buying now people its only round the corner!!!! No… just start in december like you knew it was xmas when the coca cola ad came on. It was bonfire night LAST WEEK.
May just be me or where I live but never really heard of jl till I started using this forum. Bit posh me thinks, M&S is a treat “goodie” shop on the way home one night when wage is good.Posted 4 years agomikewsmithSubscriber
So it’s the 11th of November, there are 6 weeks available to influence what people are going to spend their money on.Posted 4 years ago
For a large number of people money will be spent incrementally purchasing gifts over the next few weeks. Starting now ensures you will be in there before November pay day (for most) and allow a retailer to build some momentum.TheArtistFormerlyKnownAsSTRSubscriber
Christmas advertising has started pretty much around bonfire night for ages – and to be fair, a lot of people start their Christmas shopping.
It’s hardly a surprise is it?
For me, Christmas preparations start in December, but I just accept that we will have it in our faces well before that.
As soon as Christmas is over, Cadbury’s will be advertising Crème Eggs.

I hadnt heard of jl. I was brought up buying me clothes off me bros “dodgy” m8 the mother shopped at kwik save and I spent every living moment out on my bmx. The poshest store in blackpool is jd sports : p theres an mns in lytham and the town centre and thats it tbf. Most blackpool residents shop at home bargins or bnm bargins as theres no solid work in the town most people work away like I do.Posted 4 years agoIdleJonSubscriber

Like a lot of people, my wife and I get paid on the 28th November – 17 days time – and don’t get paid until after Christmas. If we haven’t finished all of our Xmas shopping out of 28th Novs pay nothing more will be bought.
If the advertisers wait until December to start then they will have missed out on a huge portion of the population.
I really can’t believe that some of you struggle with this concept?Posted 4 years ago
