Some people like to discuss their favorite Christmas movie. Others like to list their favorite Christmas songs.
What about Christmas commercials?
When I lived in Oklahoma City, the impending holidays would be signaled by B.C. Clark’s “anniversary sale” commercial with a snappy littleÂ jingle everyone in Oklahoma City knew as well as “Jingle Bells.” A sled goes sliding overÂ mounds of snow in an animated commercial that was shown for years.Â Just thinking about it makes me remember “Jewelry is the gift to give…lalalala…some sales are after Christmas, butÂ Clark’s is just before.” hmmm hmmmm.

I really like the new Target commercial with Santa Claus jogging pretty fast for a fat guy. With his red hat bouncing, he turns into the Target parking lot to get something he must have forgotten.
But my favorite, all-time Christmas commercial is for Folger’s. Peter, coming home from college, gets dropped off at his front door, where his little sister greets him. Together they make great coffee for the whole family, and that great coffee aroma wakes up Mom. Mom comes down the stairs to be surprised by Peter, and then the whole family drinks coffee while opening presents. Love it. You can watch it here:Â http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4kNl7cQdcU
