Christmas Commercials Then and Now

Just like Christmas songs we look forward to hearing, there are commercials we look forward to seeing every holiday season, many of which have become classics.  And just like the songs, many of the commercials have been “updated” over the years, many with the same theme.  We found eight Christmas commercials from then, and now.

    Family and good friends, that’s what it’s all about, right Fiona honey? I BELIEVE in MIRACLES honey because MY CHRISTMAS MIRACLE IS YOU.

    Great commercials, can’t say I remember them though! What are your plans for Christmas?
    Well, in the event (God forbid) of NO MIRACLE this Christmas for whatever reason, I will spend Christmas Eve at the old church that I used to go with my brother and dad as a kid and keep BELIEVING that Fiona and I will be together. I think I was about 10, 11 or 12 when I last went to a Christmas Eve service there; better then feeling fucking sorry for myself, right? Gotta keep BEliEVING in MIRACLES! Those are mhy plans!
    Christmas day, oon’t know yte!
