There was nothing so magical to me as a kid as the holiday adverts on television. Call that sad but holiday adverts cater specifically to everything wonderful in kid-dom: toys, candy and short attention spans. Everything was bright, warm, well-scored and colourful around the holidays with cheesy smiles galore and sappy storylines that made your mother tear up. Here are some of the most memorable from Christmas, Easter and Hallowe’en to me and probably you too:
