First of all, Congrats to all involved in the BBC Children in Need fundraiser last night…the amazing British public gathered £47.9 Million!!! Just wow!
Secondly, I keep having discussions with people about the John Lewis Christmas adverts, so I thought I’d give you my rankings.. the dragon is cute but still not my favourite.
Fair warning; there are 13 of them, so this may take half an hour for you to watch them all but you need to watch at least the top 8…so grab a hot drink and get comfy!
13th place: “Know the Person” 2008
12th Place: “The Journey” 2012
11th Place: “Your Song” 2010
10th Place: Moz the Monster 2017
9th Place: “The Bear and the Hare” 2013
8th Place: “Shadow” The one that started it all in 2007
7th place: “Man on the Moon” 2015
6th place: “The Boy and the Piano” 2018
5th place: “Sweet Child o’ Mine” 2009
4th Place: “Buster the Boxer” 2016
3rd Place: “Edgar the Dragon” 2019… This year’s extravaganza!
2nd place: “The Long Wait” 2011
1st Place: “Monty the Penguin” 2014
So we’ve learned that they’re consistently good, possibly getting better (2 of my top 4 were in the last couple of years). We’ve also learned that my 80’s childhood perhaps traumatised me (with Daleks that move like snowmen and depressed rabbits) but it gave me a real appreciation of Elton John’s music!
Most of all we’ve seen that I love kids, animals and Christmas…but I guess you knew that already!!
