With Christmas fast apporaching and the festive season soon to be in full swing, we thought it would be nice to give that little Christmassy touch. I mean, why not? Our TVs are telling us it’s Christmas after all, everyone’s in high spirits and who doesn’t love the gorgeous festive adverts that grace our media at this beautiful time of year? I sure do.
Throughout my childhood days, I personally used to adore any Christmas advert that was displayed on my old, chunky Panasonic screen. The sight of santa on his slay complemented by Mariah Carey’s southing ‘All I want for Christmas’ festive hit; totally ravished my childhood dreams. Fast forward all these years and nothing’s changed at all (besides the fact it is my son now who sits eagerly with me watching the marketing magic happen).
From the now classic John Lewis advert to the more tarditional “Santa Clause is Coming” from Coca-Cola, Christmas is hand’s down the merriest time of the year which is loved by most people, especially those who form part of the magnificent world of marketing. That’s right, I’m a sucker for the festive period and an even bigger sucker for the memorable adverts that come along with it. Here are my top 5 favourite Christmas marketing campaigns so far this year!
