Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas....

There is no avoiding the festive season when you are bombarded with Christmas adverts on the TV. Over the past few years, these have become bigger than some of the TV programmes that they sandwich and are now a huge part of the Christmas countdown. Here are my favourites from 2013 and my 5 festive favourites from this year 2014. It seems this year the big names are all trying to show Christmas as less commercial, which is a little ironic and showcase what its about; sharing, happiness, good deeds,peace, love and friendship.... gets a big hug from me!
1. Sainsbury's ~ Silent Night - haunting and symbolic of this years commemorations of the first world war. Symbolising Christmas is for sharing, made in collaboration with the British Legion, it is stunning.... every stocking should have a bar of chocolate in it this year.
2. John Lewis ~ Monty the Penguin - JL have done is again, they have every year pulled out all the stops for their christams ad, and this years tugs on all the heart strings,... loving Monty & Mabel
3. Waitrose Gingerbread Stall - simple & effect, when you own something, you care just a little more.
4.Magic & Sparkle from M&S.... a little disappointed that M&S didn't have  David Gandy in his pants and aSanta hat for their ad his year, but liking the fairies... Marble Arch M&S looks fabulous, I will share some pictures soon.
5.Give a little Happiness ~ Coca Cola.... Holiday's are definitely coming when the Coca Cola truck pulls over the hill... liking the give a little happiness.
 Are you loving the ads? and if so which ones are your favourites?
