The Christmas swag starts coming a little earlier every year. It’s not even Halloween, and already St. Nicholas’s bearded face has popped up in the ad for the Smoky Mountain Knife Works Schrade Old Timer Sweepstakes. I believe they win the Holiday Season Jump-the-Gun award this year.
The meat of the giveaway: One winner will get a brand-new Old Timer 50th Anniversary 2008 Dodge Ram truck, to be awarded in January. Purchase any Schrade blade from Smokey Mountain from now till December 31, 2008, and you’re automatically entered — at the very least, you net a sweet knife for each entry.
Let the season of shameless commercialization of the Christmas season begin — last one to Thanksgiving gets lowest billing.
