Commercials: Beautiful Christmas Thoughts and So Much More

Hello and Happy Black Friday, although this year may not be as big a shopping blow-out as in previous years. I, for one, am avoiding all stores and in-person shopping. There is nothing I need so badly that I can’t find it online or in one of the three places I shop for food and stuff.

With so many of us staying home this year, television has become a bigger part of our lives and many of our attitudes are framed by the big box.

As a child, there were some things you never, ever spoke of out loud–things like feminine hygiene products, incontinence, impotence, diarrhea, constipation, pregnancy tests, condoms, I could go on and on, but you get the gist. Today, more than half the commercials deal with these formerly forbidden topics, luxury cars, and fast food. The others are relegated to insurance, banking, and upcoming programming. But Not all commercials are created alike.

This year, I was particularly touched by McDonald’s commercial. Having gone through this with my own sons growing up and seeing mt daughter doing the same with my grandchildren, it touched me deeply.

Another one that touched me was the one for Coke

Sometimes, they just get it right. But my all time favorite was last year’s Air Canada one.

So, like Christmas movies, there are Christmas Commercials. If you believe, you can dream. May all your Christmas wishes come true.
