Christmas adverts – the best (part 1)

Our screens are being hit by a plethora of Christmas ads, so I wanted to share what I think are the best from the last few years. This one is from Sainsbury’s, 2014. It’s beautifully made (take note Mr War Horse Spielberg, what trenches really looked like) and it depicts a real occurrence, attested by a number of eye witnesses. It also inspired my 2017 Rainbow Calendar story, Got Mittens.

Postscript: it was only today I noticed the flock of birds at the end. I’d love them to be wild geese, the wild goose being a Celtic traditional name for the Holy Spirit.
