Destination Christmas

I’ve been longing for the Christmas season for quite some time now, and it’s finally here! I love to get in the mood with Christmas songs, films and not least – adverts (I’m sure you can tell by now)! Here’s a cute one from Heathrow Airport that I recently found. British adverts are beyond compare. The majority of the Christmas adverts I’ve seen and shared with you, I would be delighted to see as full-length feature films. There are several brilliant narratives with great messages, not to mention the various remarkable characters!

Christmas with love from Mrs Claus makes me realise what truly makes me happy – my siblings. Their happiness. I wish I could give them everything they ever wanted, but most importantly, I wish I could be with them and share the joy. I really appreciate all the time I get to spend with them (which, unfortunately, is not too often). It doesn’t matter if we just talk over the phone or if we only meet a few minutes to say hello; each and every moment is precious.

Can’t wrap this

Christmas – the most wonderful time of the year – unless you’re a Hamleys employee and have to wrap teddy bears and other toys that are ‘mission impossible’ ha-ha! Today it is three years ago I started working as a Christmas employee at Hamleys (The Finest Toy Shop in the World) in Malmö. Undoubtedly a festive season and a very merry time of my life!

If only there was a way to be in two places at once

Breaking news, Sainsbury’s Christmas advert this year is, in my opinion, way better than John Lewis’s. Sainsbury’s The Greatest Gift is very captivating and contemporary. I can easily relate to: “I don’t have time, there’s only one of me”. Watch it!

It’s worth peeking at John Lewis’s Christmas advert too, it’s just that I expected something more sentimental in line with previous years. Buster The Boxer is, regardless, very sweet!

Last but not least, another wonderful Christmas/winter story worth sharing! The excellent moral of the tale: “Make time for what you love”.

Time to come home

My love for good Christmas adverts is endless. This one is heartbreaking but with an extremely important message. Since I will have to spend Christmas alone this year it gets particularly emotional for me. I must work as much as possible the coming months, which means that I need to stay in southern Sweden during the holidays, and I only have my family here… I cannot remember the last time I was welcome to join any of them for Christmas (nor anything else really). I miss my parents and siblings so much. All I want for Christmas – is you.
