Christmas spirit?

I love everything about the lead up to Christmas. I love buying Christmas gifts. I love the Christmas cards we give and receive. I love the music that is played by carollers and on the radio. I even like winter and the fact it is cold outside. I adore decorating the tree and how everyone just seems a little happier in the festive period. I really believe Christmas waves this magical wand over the world.


When I was a little girl there was an advert on the television for Coca-Cola that got me into the Christmas spirit straight away. It comes on in November but when the nation sees it it sends everyone into a surge of "It's nearly Christmas." I remember when it came on this year Facebook gave rise to Coca-Cola advert statuses and how the holidays are coming!


I love it! It isn't the best advert out there but everyone seems so taken with it when it comes on. It has colour, sparkle, community, Santa and the anticipation. To me it doesn't sell coca-cola one bit (even if it is everywhere throughout the advert!).



This advert takes me back to being 5 years old screaming that Christmas was on it's way.


What is the first thing that gets you into the Christmas spirit?!

I haven't seen that commercial before - how fun! I do love all the Coke commercials we have in the states too though - they always seem to do a good job of making Christmas-y commercials!

Awsome! I also love Christmas! Putting up the tree, baking mince pies and Christmas cookies! We no longer get carolers coming by our house, but the cd's come and out and I have carols playing, with my Christmas apron, and flour and sugar dusting all over .... the best!

One of our radio stations begins playing Christmas music the day after Thanksgiving until Christmas. That always gets me in the spirit. :)
