Default Christmas adverts 2016.

Waitrose or John Lewis.....which one is your favourite?

I have to go with the Waitrose advert especially as the Robin is my favourite bird species!

Both are excellent in their own special way!

Good to see you posting again Judith.

As for the adverts, they're both a bit much for me I'm afraid, though if forced to choose it would be the Robin one. I guess it's ever so slightly easier to ignore feeding Robins sugary mince pies than it is to ignore a Hedgehog waking up in December to bounce on a trampoline alongside its mates. I do like the boxer though.

Is a sense of humour on your Christmas list Peter?

Love both of them well thought out and entertaining.

Great to have you back Judith

PS - when will we have a day without a furniture sale advert?
