Image of the Week #13: Start Your Christmas on October 1
What Is ItAn advertisement from the Wellesley News, the student newspaper of Wellesley College, from the late 1910s.
Why I Find It InterestingWe get frustrated when we see ads for Christmas before Halloween. Consider that this ad was published in September and that is likely to stun you. What's more is how the ad tries to capitalize not just on Christmas but also seems to be trying to profit from the war as well but connecting their store with being patriotic. Apparently, George Bush was not the first to make such dubious connections.
