Five Nostalgic Christmas Adverts To Get Us In The Mood

As the holiday season approaches, one of the most heart-warming traditions is the release of Christmas adverts by popular brands and retailers.

These commercials often touch our hearts, evoke a sense of nostalgia, and remind us of the true spirit of Christmas. While new ads continue to capture our attention each year, there are some classic festive adverts that never fail to bring a smile to our faces and get us in the holiday mood. Let's take a trip down memory lane and revisit five of these nostalgic Christmas adverts:

1. Coca-Cola - Holidays Are Coming:

When you hear the catchy tune and see the iconic red Coca-Cola truck cruising through a snowy landscape, you know the holiday season has officially begun. Coca-Cola's "Holidays Are Coming" advert, which has been warming our hearts since 1995, perfectly captures the magic of Christmas. It's a reminder that even the simplest moments can fill us with joy and anticipation.


2. John Lewis - The Bear and the Hare:

John Lewis is renowned for its emotional and visually stunning Christmas adverts, but "The Bear and the Hare" from 2013 holds a special place in our hearts. This tale of friendship, set to Lily Allen's cover of Keane's "Somewhere Only We Know," reminds us of the importance of giving and sharing during the holiday season.


3. Marks & Spencer - This Is Not Just Food...:

Marks & Spencer's "This Is Not Just Food..." campaign, which began in 2004, is synonymous with indulgent Christmas feasts. The mouth-watering visuals and seductive voiceover have become a part of the holiday experience. It's a reminder that Christmas is a time for savouring delicious meals and sharing them with loved ones.


4. Sainsbury's - Mog's Christmas Calamity:

"Sainsbury's - Mog's Christmas Calamity" from 2015 brought to life Judith Kerr's beloved children's book character, Mog the cat. This heart-warming advert tells the tale of Mog's misadventures and the heart-warming community spirit that ensues. It reminds us of the importance of helping one another, especially during the festive season.


5. Toys "R" Us - Magical Place:

"Toys "R" Us - Magical Place" from the 1980s and 1990s will forever hold a special place in the hearts of those who grew up with it. The jingle, "I don't wanna grow up, I'm a Toys 'R' Us kid," still echoes in the minds of many adults, invoking feelings of nostalgia for the magic of childhood Christmases spent dreaming of toys.
