Nowadays, there are very few Christmas commercials capable of evoking the true spirit of Christmas, they just don’t make them like they used to anymore. Here are a few classics that I look forward to each year. Although my favorites do not always make it on the air, I remain optimistic of seeing them one day and feeling as joyous as I did as a child.
As a little girl, I would literally wait in front of the television to catch this catchy tune, "The Hess truck's back and it's better than ever, for Christmas this year, the Hess trucks here." As the years progressed, a few words from the jingle have been changed for the purpose of the product but it still evokes that same jolly feeling within me. As far as I'm concerned, the Hess commercials are synonymous with Christmas.
This Folgers commercial is truly a classic and should be the standard for all other Christmas commercials. I got a bit emotional watching it just now because it's so genuine and it embodies everything Christmas is supposed to be about -- love and family.
I adore the simplicity of this Hershey's commercial. It's delightful to have the individual kisses serenade us with "We Wish You A Merry Christmas," while wearing the two colors that denote Christmas more than any other -- red and green
This Campbell's commercial does'nt have a Christmas theme but I'm so accustomed to seeing it around Christmas time, that it has made the list as one of my absolute favorites. Each time I watch it, I just want to go outside, build a snowman and rush home to snuggle underneath a warm cozy blanket with a steaming bowl of chicken noodle soup. Let it snow indeed!
This Pamper's commercial makes me yearn for motherhood. The babies look so peaceful in their silent night slumber. This is a commercial that makes you want to stop, listen and immerse yourself in the magic of Christmas.
What is Christmas without Mr. humbug himself ? Only Christmas and apparently a bowl of honey nut cheerios can turn the ultimate Mr. curmudgeon, merry.
