While enjoying my relaxing morning, the sounds of Christmas advertising invaded my home. Don’t get me wrong, I am the biggest fan of Christmas and I am dying to put up the decorations.
However, the beginning of November is not a time for retailers, in this case Leon’s , to be striving to beat their competitors and advertising their Christmas bargains. This is a time for us all to honour the gift of freedom we have been given by our troops.
We have so many reasons to thank the men and women before us that served our country and sacrificed to make Canada what it is today. The act of remembrance isn’t something that we should do only on November 11th, but every time you see our flag waving.
So my thoughts to the marketing team at Leon’s, I strongly recommend that you show some respect and ho-ho-hold your self-serving commercials while the rest of us pay tribute to the sacrifices made by our military.
