Classic Christmas Commercials

Ho Ho Ho! Welcome boys and girls to Christmastime 2012 here at Me and You! This is without a doubt my absolute favorite time of year--always has been, always will be. As much as I love the Countdown to Halloween, Christmas is my first love when it comes to holidays. And until the new year arrives, I'll be all Christmas, all the time--and Chanukah and Kwanzaa and New Year's Day, if I can. I may not post every weekday, as I do with Halloween, but every post I make will be Christmas-related.

And now, on with the yuletide festivities!

First, as I usually do, I start with some cool Christmas-themed commercials. Here's a fun one for Verizon Wireless featuring the Misfit Toys from Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.



Verizon Wireless strikes again with a reveal of what naughty kids receive from Santa these days.



Here is a two-minute commercial break from Christmastime 1981 with several holiday ads, including a commercial for Polaroid featuring the Muppets I've never seen before.



It's fallen on hard times these days, but back in 1983 Sears was one of the most important places you could go Christmas shopping!



I know when I think Christmas, I think of...Pizza Hut?



Finally, as long as we're eating fast food at Christmas, we might as well go to Burger King!



There are plenty of great Christmas commercials out there, so I may feature more of these in the future. Stay tuned!

Hot dog, I love it! Love the Christmasy feel your blog has now, love the vintage ads. I swear I remember some of them, especially the Sears one. Good times indeed.

Thanks for the enthusiastic comment, Joe! The font is called "Mountains of Christmas"--I thought it was perfect!
