Re: First Taste of Christmas in July hits QVC in June

There is every excuse in the book to make it earlier and earlier.  QVC used to do Christmas in July on the 24th and 25th of July.  2 days, get people excited about the holiday.  Then they began doing it those 2 days plus a few more throughout the month.

 

Then it started July 1 and goes throughout the entire month.  And now this year, because June 30th is on a weekend day (Sunday), that's the reason.  If they want it on a weekend, why not make it the following weekend, the first weekend of July and "Christmas in July" makes more sense.

 

All the holiday decor shows aren't my jam.  I'm not into all of the tsotchkes for the holidays anymore and haven't been for the last couple of years.  When Jill had the holiday decor shows, I would watch occassionally. 

 

 


@Lipstickdiva  For someone who doesn’t like CIJ, you seem to have a very comprehensive log of the history of its programming. I wish my memory was as good as yours.

Re: First Taste of Christmas in July hits QVC in June

I'll be recording CIJune.  I want a pre-lit white (not flocked, but actually white) christmas tree (my green pre-lit tree finally bit the dust last year; the middle section doesn't light up) so will be keeping an eye out for that.

Re: First Taste of Christmas in July hits QVC in June

I bought no actual holiday stuff last year from Q (or anywhere else for that matter) and I'm not in the market for anything this year either (although regular lanterns and candles can make me hit 'submit'! LOL).

 

But I always love to watch CIJ, and will be doing so this year as well. 

 

I don't get the whining about CIJ or holiday inspired programming on Q in the least. 

 

How is it any different than the shows they beat to death all year long, that I can't stand

 

Shoe shopping (UGH)

The endless barrage of clothing 

Beauty products endlessly, even when they had a whole channel just for the beauty

Handbags who's prices would feed a small third world village for months.

 

But, I don't go to those forums and whine about how much I can't stand that programming. I just don't watch, and therefore don't shop during those times. 

 

The point is, QVC has many times over more programming that ISN'T  Christmas based, all through the year, and during the holidays as well. It just seems like many people can't accept sharing the air time with others who want to see a different category of programming.

@XmasDreams  Thank you! If Valerie is on at midnight on both days, does that mean she will have a TSV for 2 days in a row?

[ Edited ]

@XmasDreams Thank you very much for posting these details.  Looks like a good line up.  

 

I've got my Christmas notebook primed and ready to go.  Can't wait to see all the different presentations.

 

Hope the anti Christmas-in-July group has a good time with their alternative activities.  I mean that, truly.  

 

As for me, I look forward to CIJ every year and always pick up some nice things, some for presents, and in home decor a mix of things I can use all year and others that are just for the holly jolly/winter festivities.

@aroc3435   I had to smile when reading about your Christmas notebook. I have one, also. I love to jot down ideas and inspirations as I see them and then look back when I am decorating in December.

 

It's all good. Smiley Happy
