    Christmas is coming - TV Commercials

    I just heard on TV that today is the day that big retailers launch their expensive TV commercials.

    These have become mini-films that romote 'a feeling' for Christmas rather than a hard sell

    So here's the latest TV Ad 'Man on the Moon' by John Lewis - it cost £7 million to make!

    Out of interest John Lewis have used the music from Manchester band 'Oasis' called 'Half the World Away'

    No need for ads to remind me, I am all sorted. Started to write cards and wrap presents. I have had them since the beginning of the year. Saves a fortune buying them all in the sales.

    Here's ASDA's Christmas advert - a bit noisy for me.

    Never been in the place and never will - even if I could afford to. It'l be Home Bargains and the pound shop for me - am I bothered - NO. I would hate the thought of mingling with all those dreadfully posh shoppers clad in their expensive fur coats etc - whilst looking down at me. It's bad enough in Sainsbury's - John Lewis's would be a step too far for me.

    All I have to say is: BAH HUMBUG!

    I don't buy into the whole Christmas thing. I'm not religious, and this year have asked people to make donations to either an animal charity or a cancer charity instead of getting me a present.

    Not only that, this year have asked what I want for Christmas, my response was: I don even know what I want for my birthday yet, never mind Christmas...

    It may seem miserable but Christmas harbours bad memories of people being ill and/or dying.
