Merry Christmas! Happy Chanukah! Happy Kwanzaa! Yes, it is, indeed, the most wonderful time of the year again, and that means wall-to-wall holiday fare here at the blog. If you love the holidays as much as I do, you're in for a treat! If the holidays aren't your thing--well, please bare with me until after the new year when I get back to non-holiday shenanigans. The blog is decorated (moreso than my house right now, unfortunately), and it's time to bring on the good stuff. First up, as is traditional here for the holidays, are fun TV commercials of the season.
Do your Christmas shopping at the Mall of America.
Enjoy some delicious Carvel ice cream cakes (you know how much I love these commercials).
Here is a classic one for the late toy store chain Lionel Kiddie City.
Here's one for a sister store to Kiddie City, Lionel Playworld, starring a young Seth Green!
The best part of waking up Christmas morning is Folger's in your cup.
These precocious youngsters try to snap a shot of Santa with a Polaroid camera.
Time to make the Christmas donuts!
Remember 976 and 1-900 numbers? Many were not as family-friendly as this one, but this seems kind of creepy in its own way.
Finally, another of the Rice Krispy Treats commercials I love so much.
And so it begins. Stay tuned for more reindeer games now through the end of the year. Thanks!
