The holidays are a time where big brands go all out with their advertising and some even make us cry with their yesteryear and nostalgic tug at the heartstrings. You may even call some of them ‘short films’ but from my experience from living in the UK, the best Christmas adverts were always those from well known department store brands.
Some of you may or may not have seen these adverts, so whatever it is – you’re welcome for bringing them to you for the first time and you’re welcome for reminding you of them.
