Target is ready for Christmas – in October

Christmas is a happy, joyful time of the year. Christmas advertising on the other hand is a despicable, ugly beast that's an unfortunate side effect of the holiday that's loved by many. Why do we have so much hate for Christmas ads? Simple. It's not the music or the message. It's the fact the advertising starts earlier and earlier every year.

Target took the initiative this year and started advertising for Christmas – in the middle October! Halloween isn't even here yet and Target is showing off snow, bright lights and presents. The ad itself is completely acceptable. The fact it was uploaded on Target's YouTube channel on October 11th is not.
