Christmas advertising

"In these difficult times, Christmas can still bring us together"

*Shot switches to behind family, showing grandparents on a zoom call smiling and waving*

"And with our special 'Heroes' campaign, we donate 0.001p of every £10 spent to NHS TiKTok training charities"

*Song starts playing in background - acoustic version of Bring your daughter to the Slaughter, cover by Ellie Goulding*

"So however you choose to spend this holiday season..."

*Shot of smiling Muslim family having turkey for some reason*

"... spend it safely."

Just thought I'd point out that today is the first day of Advent and so Christmas advertising, decorations, greetings, whatever, are now acceptable (to me).

Funnily enough, despite the clear religious significance of Advent, I've not actually seen any obvious signs of Christmas suddenly appearing -- just more of the slow drift.  Funny that.

Anyway, son#1 has ensured that we've celebrated Advent properly at our household (not that he's religious -- he's just looking forward to present time).

[I'm sure that those who believe Advent starts with eating the first little chocolate behind the '1st Dec' door will forgive me for being a couple of days early]

I learnt a long time ago the big door in the kitchen hides a wealth of chocolate and you can open it as often as you like per day.
