Can we honestly get some time to appreciate a holiday and all it brings, before commercialization yanks the rug out from under us and forces us to focus on the next one? Let me explain … you know when August rolls in, and you see Halloween jack - o - lanterns and witch hats everywhere? Like seriously guys, it’s August! Can we let the summer live?
Then, October comes, and there are Thanksgiving banners and paraphernalia everywhere?
When will stores allow us to savor the holiday moment? When do we get to actually revel in the joy the holiday brings without being forced to look forward and prepare for the next one?
Dear marketing teams, I get that it’s your job to tell us what we like and should be looking forward to but can we please get a reprieve from the holiday overload during this time of the year?
