Day 17 – My Day
Today was supposed to be a Snow Photo shoot day! But, there hasn’t been any snow at all recently which is such a bummer. I was so adamant when I made the list, that I would be able to go out and take some pictures of one of the prettiest things in December – but I couldn’t. Which means that I had to come up with something else to fill this gap.
Instead, I’m going to write about my Christmas day yesterday. I woke up in the morning, and for the first time in ages, me, my brother and my Dad were all in the same place at the weekend. It felt so nice to all sit on the sofa and watch some morning TV, and definitely made me excited for Christmas when we can spend more time together.
Then I took my Dad shopping into Town so that he could buy some presents for his parents – and a sneaky one for me, while I looked the other way. We haven’t done shopping together in ages, if we ever have, and it was lovely to get out of the house with him and spend the day together.
When I came back, I had just enough time to get all dressed up and redo my hair and make up before heading out to Pizza Express. Me and a few of my best friends had such a nice meal before then grabbing some cocktails. I had a wonderful evening with them before Christmas, as it’s always nice to spend some time with them ahead of the big day.
Day 18 – My Favourite Christmas Adverts
I think this was one of the first major Christmas adverts I’d seen this year, so it stuck in my mind. Plus I had a little giggle at the pun on the original advert. I think it’s funny, cheeky and quite Christmassy.
I really liked that the advert showed the significance of the meaning behind Presents and having the chance to show people how well you know and love them.
3. John Lewis
While not one of my favourites of theirs, it still owns a spot on this list. I thought the moral was really cute, and I thoroughly enjoyed watching it. I didn’t understand the confusion that everyone had with the advert as I thought it was simple to understand, and showed what Christmas was all about. That at this time of year, we put other people first and buy presents that are full of meaning – which is why the monster sacrificed his relationship by buying the boy a nightlight.
4. Marks and Spencers
I do love this advert, and thought it was really funny and reminded me of the Grinch – which is always a good thing! I must admit however, that one of the reasons I found it so funny is because every time I watch it, it sounds like the burglar whispers “F**k you little bear” instead of thank you. It makes me and my Dad laugh so much when we see it.
