It’s that time of year again. My favourite time year, when it’s acceptable to eat copious amounts of food, wear large over-sized jumpers and share in the magic of this holiday season with friends and family (less talk about brand management software too!). So in the Christmas spirit what better way to start off our Christmas blog series than with a review of some of the holiday adverts.
My favourite Christmas advert this year is Sainsbury’s which remembers 100 years since that start of World War I and also shows a touching story of German and Allied soldiers coming together on Christmas Eve. The advert is based on the Christmas Truce of 1914 and while historians are unsure if the German and Allied soldiers actually played football together they are almost certain they did. This advert remembers the fallen and proves that even in the most horrendous situations true humanity can be shown; a great message for us all to remember this season.
