Christmas Ads 2017 Part 1

The Christmas ad season has begun. (I love Christmas. I even wrote a book about it!) Not all ads are for me. I tend to like the ones that provoke an emotion, whether it be tears, joy, happiness or the evoking of nostalgic thinking.

If you like Christmas I think you will enjoy some of these.

I have already viewed more than 20 this morning!

My first “I like” ad appeared a few weeks ago when the Kia ad opened with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra “Carol of the Bells”. (I was sad to hear of the loss of their founder, Paul O’Neill, who passed away on April 2017.)

And here is a Christmas fairy tale from Debenhams. It is a Cinderella story.

Do you like the ones that have a little twist? This is my “tears” one so far. This to me is the spirit of Christmas. I love the “pay it forward” in it.

So, that is it for this round. I have my alerts on for new ones, so consider subscribing to our blog.

If you have a great link to a Christmas ad I would love to see it. As we ready for the holiday season, if you have positive stories to share, I hope you will send it along. I am going to be looking for cool pictures, Christmas light videos and stories of giving and helping.

A few years ago I took my grandchildren to what turned out to be the last year of lights at this mansion.
