    Having read about it, I've just seen it on Youtube and no, not a single tear, nothing at all. I am pretty underwhelmed.

    A million to make the advert and six million to buy airtime. Hmmm.

    All this money on adverts and I never buy anything in John Lewis... too expensive.

    Not sure I like the Debenhams one but at least,there is a story and a narrative.

    Just think what the homeless could do with £7,000,000.

    I liked it! But then I have just become a grandmother for the first time and so am probably susceptible to sentiment at the moment.

    I love Christmas and the ads usually get me emotional and sentimental but this one.nothing at all.

    I did pop onto the website to look at decorations... generally I love them all and this year I think I have found a favourite ...

    https://www.johnlewis.com/john-lewis-into-the-woods-brussels-sprout-bauble/p3230020 *little devil in me says buy it to irritate the Brussels sprout protestors while another part says don't be mean.

    Then there's the slightly demonic angel/cherub...


    Looks like a really bored KS1 kid.

    How often do you buy decorations and what's your favourite like? It might be time for a clear out of my ancient and rather dusty old Christmas Decs and start again.

    Absolute rubbish! A awful band like Elbow (what kind of a band name is that?) destroying a wonderful Beatles song.

    Why not just have snow, a Christmas tree, little brats singing and yummy mummies giving them plastic rubbish. It's got to work!

    Is that the one with the monster under the bed? I lost the will to watch after about 30 seconds so didn't get to the tag line.
