Happy OctoNovemCember everyone! No.. I’m not loosing my mind (although some days I feel that way). OctoNovemCember is a real “holiday” (well…sort of). During OctoNovemCember we celebrate the holiday king, the Pumpkin-Headed Turkey Claus.
Now I KNOW you all think I’m crazy.
Perhaps this press release from RetailMeNot.com, the nation’s largest online coupon site, can help shed some light on this unusual holiday, and even stranger holiday king, the Pumpkin-Headed Turkey Claus.
’Twas the night before we all shopped and RetailMeNot (www.RetailMeNot.com), the biggest online coupon site in the United States, announced the release of the first segment of its webisode series that introduces the holiday shopping story of OctoNovemCember.
“OctoNovemCember is no fairy tale,” said Jill Balis, senior vice president of marketing for WhaleShark Media, Inc., the operator of RetailMeNot.com. “Consumers across the country are starting their holiday shopping earlier than ever and continue to hunt for deals to stretch their budgets. Merchants are competing to provide incentives, compelling offers and great discounts to capture as much of their share of holiday spend as they can from now through the end of the year.”
Those interested in watching the webisode series, learning more about OctoNovemCember and catching a glimpse of the shopping holiday’s king, the Pumpkin-Headed Turkey Claus, can visit the newly launched online holiday hub at www.RetailMeNot.com/Holiday.
In addition to sharing the story of OctoNovemCember, the holiday deals hub will soon feature deep discounts for the entire holiday shopping season through Black Friday, Cyber Monday and onward through Christmas. RetailMeNot’s staff is diving into its database of 500,000+ coupons from tens of thousands of merchants and will soon — on a daily basis — feature select retailers and well-known brands with the best available online and in-store deals.
See… I’m not crazy after all.
