It’s that bloody time of year again! Although some people may be groaning at the idea of Christmas decorations going up, holiday playlists getting ‘featured’ on Spotify and Sky’s Christmas movie channel debuting. However, some of us are filled with glee and excitement that it’s that The Holiday season is upon us (and yes I realise I’ve capitalised ‘The’ and that’s because in my opinion this holiday outranks any other).

One of the modern traditions that I can’t get enough of is the release of big brands’ Christmas/Holiday advert. I believe it all started with Coca-Cola’s infamous “Holidays are coming” and who doesn’t remember hearing that tune and thinking that Christmas must almost be here.

2016 saw some crackers of Christmas ads and I cannot wait to see what 2018 will bring. So, without further ado here’s the best (and worst – Sainsbury’s we’re looking at you) ads 2017 have ‘gifted’ with us so far…

Marks & Spencer – Paddington

John Lewis – #MoztheMonster

Aldi – Kevin the Carrot

Barbour – The Snowman and Snowdog

Argos – #ReadyForTakeOff

Asda – Best Christmas Ever

Morrisons – Christmas List

Lidl – Double Dipper (they’re cheating slightly by releasing a series of adverts, here’s the first)

Tesco – Turkey every which way

Sainsbury’s – #everybitofChristmas

Waitrose – #ChristmasTogether

So what do you think? Who’s Chrismtas Advert ‘gave you all the feels’? There’s Burberry to come, who have given us some amazing theatrical adverts before, to come.
