Sharing the joy: 2015 Delightful Christmas Ads

Sharing the joy: 2015 Delightful Christmas Ads

Since the Christmas lights are on and the festive mood is lighting up the spirit in almost everyone,
I thought it will be a good idea to have a look at this year’s holiday ads.

There is a hidden competition amongst the big supermarket and retail chains when it comes to Christmas ads. This is year is no different.

Although these Christmas ads are aiming make us spend more they also make us laugh or cry a little bit, and also think about the most emotional holiday of the year.

The common message in holiday ads is about sharing this wonderful holiday with family, friends, neighbours or complete strangers. Putting aside the commercial element (if possible) in all the ads, they all urge us to be good to each other and no matter what gift we choose for our beloved, the most important thing is to be together, show care for each other and be marry.

Let’s have a look at this year’s ads.

John Lewis – Man on the Moon

John Lewis’s Man on the Moon was a tear jerker and everyone seemed moved after watching the story of a little girl called Lily who is looking at the moon through the family telescope one night and is surprised to find a man on the moon. Lily watches the man doing his daily chores and she becomes determined to find a way to get him a present, showing that somebody on the Earth is thinking about him.

EDEKA Weihnachtsclip

Called by The Independent the heartbreaking Christmas advert rivalling John Lewis’ ‘Man On The Moon’, Edeka’s ad is sure to make you shed a tear or two. The Twitter community already shared the ad and loads of messages were written saying that lots of tears were shed all around the world. Activate the subtitles if you do not speak German

Sainsbury’s Christmas Advert 2015 – Mog’s Christmas Calamity

This year, Sainsbury’s supermarket chain worked with HarperCollins Children’s Books and talented author and illustrator Judith Kerr to create a Christmas story based on her character Mog. The main idea behind their ad this year is to make families spend time together and enjoy this special story.

Anyone who loves the story, can buy the book as the profit will be donated to Save the Children and be used to improve child literacy in UK.

Asda Christmas Advert 2015

Asda, other UK supermarket chain, presents a rather cheerful mood for this Christmas. No tears here. The upbeat song is by the talented X Factor contestant Fleur East and the ad itself is about getting together, enjoying Christmas, dress up and have fun.

The Spanish Christmas Lottery Advert 2015

The Spanish Christmas Lottery Advert 2015 has been long awaited and it was worth it. It is touching and emotional. The story is about a night guard in a mannequin factory making funny jokes with the people working at the factory during the day. It seems that these funny jokes were greatly appreciated…

The Body Shop­® Christmas Video 2015: Jingle Bells

The Body Shop took a different approach as the advert shows people from all over the world singing the favourite Jingle Bells song under the shower. The message here is “Feel So Good” and urging people to find the best gift for everyone in your family.

Coca Cola Christmas 2015 Commercial

Coca Cola Christmas commercial is a bit different. Not the usual one that we are used to see from the brand. It is an outdoor advert that makes people smile, share kindness and be good to each other. A Coca Cola vending machine is positioned on a town square and people have the option to get a free coke or share the good… Sharing is a bit surprising…

Let’s be honest. Christmas ads are making us buy stuff. They do it brilliantly, using the holiest holiday of all the generate profit by evoking emotions. I would like to think that Christmas is about spending time with the people you love and care. Trying not to be dramatic here. Christmas is time for joy so you can find a time to read book, or watch a movie, or just go for a long walk. Do something that makes you and your loved ones happy. Celebrate life. Expensive purchases are NOT needed for that.
