First Christmas Commercial

One of my measures of the economy is how early Christmas needs to be. The earlier, the worse things are. Retail people get desperate.

Tonight, during Boston Legal (still one of the best shows on). A woman approached her husband about going to KMart to do Christmas shopping. Hubby, raking leaves: "Christmas? Didn't we just finished carving pumpkins?" [Columbus Day pumpkins, apparently.] "They have Lay-A-Way." "Genius."

I've seen other commercials with X-Mas music and suggestions of gift ideas, but this was the first really blatant example.

Oy vey.
