The True Reason for the Season

‘Tis the season for Christmas commercials. Cars with big red bows, jolly Santa Clauses, jingling Hershey’s Kisses—you know them all.

But just in the last week or so, I’ve seen two Christmas commercials that have struck me. Perhaps because they lack all the trappings of the typical Christmas ads, but more likely because they cut to the core of why this season is so special.

I’ll let the ads speak for themselves.

Heathrow Airport | Coming Home for Christmas

Allegro | English for Beginners

In a world that is increasingly divisive and where capitalism reigns supreme, these ads are important reminders of what truly matters. Family. Relationships. Spending time with those we love. That’s our wish for you this Christmas season.

Merry Christmas from all of us at Eckel & Vaughan.
