The Christmas videos produced by John Lewis, Boots, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, and others are the highlight of the year for me. I think that there is real competition between them to produce the most entertaining. For me, the sentimentalities of the Yule Tide seasonal activities create a warm glow of well-being and consideration for others. Do you have a favourite? What do you like? However, you may not like the commercialisation, and the commodification. But that’s life. I hope you enjoy this choice of Christmas videos.
