Christmas Programming - TOO MUCH!

I love Christmas - my favorite day of the year.  But QVC is now on constant Christmas programming and gifts for 3 months?  Geez - too much.

As is all the shopping channels and flyers and sales to brick and mortar stores come everyday in the mail.  It's that time of year.

I actually LOVE, and eagerly look forward to Christmas programming! This year, they have been an especially welcome distraction.👍

 

Shows that feature seasonal decor, and practical gadgets are my favorite to watch. Valerie's visits are ALWAYS a pleasure, and I seldom miss David's Down Home Christmas.

 

I am always a little disappointed, as the season draws to an end.😊

 

~~~All we need is LOVE💖

Well, considering how long it takes to ship items to customers, three months is about right.

I agree. But I get to choose how much to watch and believe me, I am watching less. I am not in the mood for Christmas or even Thanksgiving due to the virus and the uncertainty about how bad it is getting.

Only about 7 weeks until the big day.  The way things are going it might take 7 weeks for a package to reach your destination.  Better get on the stick and start shopping.

It's all the same stuff, they just call it "gifts" now. Maybe with less beauty and fashion - thank goodness!

@Deb NYC I'm with you but it's everywhere.  My town always puts up a beautiful Christmas display on the village green, it goes up every year the day after Thanksgiving. My DH and I were driving through town the other day and alot of the stores had their Christmas decorations up then we saw the Green being decorated and I said to my DH "what's going on, what the heck happed to Halloween & Thanksgiving can we enjoy those first? "  It's rediculious !  Way to early but then everything is topsie turvie due to this pandemic.

Re: Christmas Programming - TOO MUCH!

This year is no different than any other year on QVC.  Once they start Christmas in July programming, it is full stream ahead with holiday programs.  I would suspect that more people than ever are going to be ordering on-line which means even more deliveries by USPS, FedEx, USP, etc.  If everyone wants items on time, they better not wait until the last minute.  

 

I rarely watch any of the shopping channels anymore.  If it wasn't for these boards, I'd never know what was going on anywhere with shopping.  LOL
