'Tis the season to be jolly -- and if you're a clever supermarket operator, to deck your halls with creative promotions. The German supermarket Edeka got into the spirit with a viral video featuring its cashiers scanning "Jingle Bells."
The music continues at both H-E-B and Food Lion. H-E-B's “Joyville” website provides holiday recipes, a gift guide, and free holiday music downloads from Texas honky-tonk artist Jack Ingram.
So fun to be in #texas for lots of reasons including hearing @JackIngram on @HEB holiday commercials :) #hollyjolly #loveyouhoney ;)— Amanda Scarlett (@TennScarlett) December 1, 2014

Albertsons has partnered with Nabisco and Coca-Cola on a web program allowing parents to print out personalized "letters from Santa" for their children.
Kroger is asking shoppers to do a good deed, tweet about it, and possibly win a prize in its "Cheer Challenge." The site issues a series of challenges for shoppers, ranging from volunteering at a local food bank to building a snowman.
