Barbour Christmas Advert 2019

Barbour Christmas Advert 2019

Barbour has used The Snowman by Raymond Briggs in their adverts for the last 3 years. The Barbour Christmas Advert 2019 isn’t another Snowman advert but it is still based on a Raymond Briggs book – Father Christmas 🙂

Asda Christmas Advert 2019

I’m on the ball with the Asda Christmas advert 2019. Last year and the year before I missed it but not this year and I have to say, I absolutely LOVE it!

It’s full of Christmas magic and the ending makes me smile 🙂

Argos Christmas Advert 2019

Argos Christmas advert 2019 - book of dreams
Argos Book of Dreams

This may sound daft, but there’s a special place in my heart for the Argos Book of Dreams (as the advert is calling the Argos catalogue in the Argos Christmas advert 2019) which you can read about on my post – Argos Catalogue At Christmas 1985.

However, my nostalgia for the Argos catalogue hasn’t done anything to make me like this year’s Argos Christmas advert.

I did smile at the start when he sees the drum kit circled in the catalogue and it made him remember when he wanted a drum kit as a boy, however, it isn’t a Christmassy advert and it went on far too long.

There will probably be a condensed version on the TV which in my opinion, it needs and maybe if I’d seen a shorter version, I might have liked it a little bit more!

In comparison, last year’s Christmas Fool was Christmassy and funny.

Very Christmas Advert 2019

Very Christmas advert 2019

It’s Christmas advert season – YAY!!!!
I woke up this morning and as usual, checked Facebook while drinking my coffee. I’m a member of a couple of Christmas groups on there and one of the first posts I saw was a lady saying she’d just seen the Very Christmas advert 2019.

I know it’s a silly reason to get excited but I did because I love Christmas so much! One of the things I love to do in the run up to Christmas is to watch all the new adverts and decide whether they’re better or worse than last year’s!

I love the animated Christmas adverts from Very. They’re not very long but they don’t need to be, they show the message perfectly which this year is, Get More Out of Giving.

I absolutely love buying Christmas gifts; I shop and plan for Christmas all year round so this advert resonated with me. Christmas is certainly about the giving of gifts for me, I get very excited if I stumble upon a gift that I know will make someone really happy and I can’t wait for Christmas just so I can give it to them, much like the John Lewis advert from 2011 titled The Long Wait.

So that’s the Very Christmas advert 2019, I’ll be back as soon as I hear of a new Christmas advert being released!

What Christmas advert are you looking forward to the most, or is it just me that gets excited by them?!

The Christmas Song

“Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire”

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
And folks dressed up like Eskimos

Everybody knows a turkey and some
Mistletoe help to make the season bright
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow
Will find it hard to sleep tonight

They know that Santa’s on his way
He’s loaded lots of toys and goodies
On his sleigh
And every mother’s
Child is gonna spy to see if
Reindeer really know how to fly

And so, I’m offering this
Simple phrase to kids from
One to ninety-two
Altho’ it’s been said many times
Many ways
“Merry Christmas to you”
