My project this season is to collect the weirdest holiday sales pitches, i.e., the ones that have to stretch the most to associate themselves with any of the possible Fall and Winter holidays. So far I have:
  • Buddhist teacher selling "holiday" cards to somehow assist children in African country

  • "Celebrate and give thanks all week in EverQuest® with 25% Bonus Station Cash™ and Increased faction hits all around Norrath!"

  • Ham radio tree ornaments from the American Radio Relay League.

Please drop any good ones you find in the comments. I'm sure there will be some winners.
