Just writing up the 2013 lookback and 12 Ads Of Xmas features. My word 2013 was a vintage year - BIG ad budgets used to full effect!

Remember, we do not go full tilt until the 100-days-to-go mark. And when's that? September 16th - and that's only THREE weeks away now!

OK, that was weird on QVC - two slides one after another: "CHRISTMAS IS COMING - EARLY BIRD CHRISTMAS", followed by "YOUR SUMMER PLACE - SUMMER SURPRISE."

...and if you fancy a quick taste of tinsel, QVC is having Christmas specials all day.

FOUR months to go! And today is the last Bank Holiday before Christmas... Now beginning to get cravings for stollen and snow...

Still no date for Harrods Christmas World opening, though.

Our Nick stopped by Harrods just to see what their pre-Christmas department was like. It's only a square, but a large one.

We're still waiting for Harrods Christmas World, but they've just announced that they're opening their Christmas window displays on Nov 7th.
