My Favorite Christmas Ad 0f All Time!

The Spirit of Christmas
That’s what it’s really about.
This is the year we need to keep that spirit alive.
This is the year we need to find happiness.
If we are happy, it is contagious.
I bring you my favorite ad, as this is the one to, well…
fill me with twinkle lights that shoot out of my fingers and toes.
Yes, this is the one.

May you find happiness and joy this season.
It’s the little things, not the big things, that are important.
Dance, smile, hug your kids, look at the sky.
You will become the shooting star for others.


About Jennie

I have been teaching preschool for over thirty years. This is my passion. I believe that children have a voice, and that is the catalyst to enhance or even change the learning experience. Emergent curriculum opens young minds. It's the little things that happen in the classroom that are most important and exciting. That's what I write about. I am highlighted in the the new edition of Jim Trelease's bestselling book, "The Read-Aloud Handbook" because of my reading to children. My class has designed quilts that hang as permanent displays at both the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia, and the Fisher House at the Boston VA Hospital.

    I can see why the family aspect of that appeals, and also the ‘remote contact’, so familiar these days. 🙂
    This is my own favourite Christmas ad, because of the combination of her version of the song, and the animation.

    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Thank you for this very hearttouching post, Jennie! Enjoy your first weekend, near to Christmas! Michael

    Love in Jennie!!

  8. That is a great ad! Thank you so much for sharing it.

    A friend shared that ad with me earlier this week and I bawled my eyes out. It reminds me so much of Robert Munsch’s Love You Forever, which also makes me cry every time I read it. Great share Gennie. I know this is not a Christmas ad, but I love this Budweiser one.

  10. Thanks, Jennie. Terrific message and commercial. 🎄

  11. I had to blow my nose and wipe away my tears before I could comment. I have never seen this ad but I LOVE it! Now I need to get more tissue and wipe more tears. My dancing in public makes my kids (adult) laugh. It’s vital to the life force. 😉

  12. I love that ad! I’ve never seen it before. It’s a wonderful message. 😀

  13. You certainly got me smiling, Jennie, so it’s working. Thanks.

  14. Beautiful… Can’t beat this one! 🎄HAPPIEST OF HOLIDAYS, ONE AND ALL! xo

    This is wonderful, Jennie. Since you appear to be collecting them, my favorite is the Eat’n Park Christmas Star ad. You can find that on YouTube. Christmas in Pittsburgh doesn’t start until it airs – at least not for our family.

    It’s funny because I had never seen this ad until this year. Now I’ve seen it at least a half dozen times in the last month. I love that the dad isn’t embarrassed to dance in front of his son in public. Of course, the ending is the big closer.

  17. Elizabeth says:

    All these ads were new and very encouraging to watch. They have healed the misappropriation of Pete Seeger by Volvo!

    A most beautiful video Jennie. Thanks for sharing it. Happy holidays! ❤

  22. Norah says:

    I agree about that ad, Jennie. It’s gorgeous. Happy Christmas to you and your family.

  23. I love it!! it’s so strong and so tender, a very beautiful pub, perfectly representing this family bond. Each time she makes me smile …
