Great Moments In American Capitalism

New York's always ahead of the curve compared to the rest of the country, including the foolish pretension that "Christmas" is some kind of special holiday season and not a marketing scheme planned all year long. Today, August 20, now marks the official start of Christmas insanity thanks to a Radio City Christmas Special ad in amNY. Buy your tickets today, in the middle of the damn summer.

Christmas starts today at 11am. So go buy the first tickets "of the season"—that season being SUMMER. Well, there is a slight chill in the air this morning. Go get 'em, sweaty, sick elves. (scanned from the back of amNY)

  • "Middle of the summer"? Hell, I'd say summer is winding down at this point. Still, this is pretty ridiculous. I can't imagine anyone buying tickets this early, but there must be someone like that out there...

  • Oh, just roll with the punches. Why anyone still expresses amazement that the Christmas retail season begins so early is beyond me. I ignore it and buy whatever I have to in December, like most people.
