I want to wish you a very happy Christmas break filled with laughter, good food and people you enjoy.
I know this is a crazy time of year, office parties, school plays and stolen moments for some quick online shopping.
Then suddenly it’s here. Christmas sails by and we are celebrating the new year.
In keeping with the season, I want to share an ad I think captured the spirit of Christmas.
I love this because there isn’t any hype and yet Sainsbury’s definitely own it.
They sponsored film director Kevin Macdonald in making a Youtube film called Christmas in a Day. All the footage is real family stories, shot by people in their homes and submitted for the film.
MacDonald said “I was overwhelmed by the creativity and enthusiasm of the people up and down the country, from every walk of life, who filmed their Christmas and shared it with us… it is funny, moving, often beautifully shot and above all truthful.”
That shines through.
The film is available on YouTube and you can watch the ad here:
Merry Christmas to all.
