If it takes 6 months

to prepare for Christmas you're doing something wrong.   My opinion you're over buying or over decorating.   Christmas should be about family, lfriends and getting together.   I have 4 kids and spouses, 8 grands and 5 great grands..   I never start until November at the earliest and I get everything accomplished including baking.    To me starting this early takes away from the holiday..    Obviously many disagree but that is my take on it.

Re: If it takes 6 months

 By the first of November I'm so tired of hearing about Christmas - wish it would just go away - as in - be done with it.  It's ONLY one day.

Re: If it takes 6 months

I love the Christmas in July shows but then Iove Christmas year round.  I am guessing they started on June 30th to coincide with the last day of the birthday celebration and also to take advantage of a weekend day..  I don't think anyone is doing it wrong, they are just doing it different than you.  It doesn't make them wrong.

 

I so look forward to these shows every year.  If you don't like them, don't watch them.  I don't like the make up or computer shows so I don't watch them.

I agree, @Junebug54.  I don't like CIJ and I don't watch any of them in any month.

Re: If it takes 6 months

We are all different.  I could use the story about pick up your remote, but that is obvious. 

 

Yes, it is only one day; however, it is only a tv program.   Let's face it, Christmas has been commercialized for a very long time and I don't think things are going to change.  I find it to be fun.

 

QVC is not an entertainment venture.  It is there to make money.  It has a huge payroll and has to cover that payroll and make a profit. 

 

I do not care for the gardening shows because living in an apartment, I do not have a garden.  Therefore, I find something else to do when those shows are on - no big deal.

 

I see the TSV for July 25 is Bethlehem Seasonal Lighting.  Do you think it might be another whole day of Christmas?

I don't like CIJ, but I do love Christmas.   It's certainly not just one day for me.

Re: If it takes 6 months

Several years ago I started shopping for Christmas in July, but I ended up forgetting where I hid some of the presents 😂 and as the holiday approached, I found better deals or changed my mind about what I wanted to give some people on my list.  Since then, I've been known to browse Christmas in July events, but I don't start shopping or decorating until after Thanksgiving.
