[Audio] Christmas In July Starts Today


Today is Christmas In July, its the day many retailers roll out “Christmas” specials in hopes to drive sales. Some church leaders are once again upset with retailers for kicking off the holiday shopping season with Christmas In July sales. They say the sales are another example of how the true meaning of Christmas has been lost to consumerism and greed. Some people are taking today off to go Christmas shopping.


A survey by CouponCabin reveals that 54% of people shop year-round for holiday presents. When asked when they start their holiday shopping, people said:


– All year round, I continually shop for the holidays .. 11%

– Eight months to one year in advance .. 3%

– Three to seven months in advance .. 18%

– One month to less than three months in advance .. 36%

– Less than one month in advance .. 21%
