Christmas Countdown

Today I'm going to share with you my top 5 UK Christmas adverts for 2015.  I'm not getting paid to post them here and I apologise to my US readers if the videos don't play in your region.

#5  Because Cadbury's is my favourite chocolate

#4  I just love the clever boxes in this one

#3 Mog's nightmare

#2 John Lewis
The John Lewis Christmas advert is usually my number one choice.  This one is still great but there is one that supercedes it.

Drum roll please
At #1

Of course the whole point of these adverts is to sell stuff.  Not to point us towards the real meaning of Christmas.

There is a new advent study starting on His Kingdom Come today or you could use the study I wrote with Diane Marra last year: Pause, Ponder & Prepare.

Today is the first Sunday in Advent.  This is the period from now until Christmas Day when we consider the coming of Jesus.  And the world needs Jesus more than ever.


  1. Thank you for sharing these adverts, Bernice. I have shared the last two on my FB page.
    Looking forward to sharing this Advent season with you and all the family at HKC.

  2. These are wonderful we lived in England for 2&1/2 years at Cambridge. My husband was in the U.S. Air Force in 1957-60. We have gone back 7 times I think. I so enjoy your pictures of your walks and trips And have enjoyed your art journals. Praying for a safe and Blessed Christmas season for our world.
