Remembering Christmas During the Great War – Television Advert

As we move towards Christmas retailers are releasing their Christmas adverts. I saw the one for John Lewis last week and thought it was long and very sweet, but the advert I am about to share is my one of the season.

Produced by Sainsbury’s it encapsulates the spirit of Christmas and friendship even in a war torn Europe during the First World War.

There is also film about the historical event behind the advert.

The final video is about how Sainsbury’s made the advert

I think it is a lovely advert. Capturing the spirit of Christmas and enabling us to perhaps learn and ponder over Christmas in the trenches. Whoever thought of the advert has down Sainsbury’s proud!
