This year, it seems people got into decorating for Halloween a lot more than normal. And as you’ve probably noticed, retail department stores are pushing the Christmas decor on us before Thanksgiving. It’s getting crazy. I like to keep the holidays separate — my rule is no Christmas music or Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving. But stores seem to not be informed of my rule.
Before long, these holidays will all become merged by the unstoppable commercialization process. Figuring out how to market the holidays together might seem difficult, but fortunately someone has already figured all this out. In the article I’m about to link to, Chris Carlisle combines Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. For a mascot / symbol, he creates a “ninja robot Mecha Santa Claus”. If that’s not enough to get you to read the article, I don’t know what is… Plus it’s funny, and he has a good way of explaining all this.
