Love it or hate it, the Christmas season is swiftly approaching. So, get your hot chocolate out, a few after-eights, put your feet up because it’s time for the Christmas adverts.
Every year, companies challenge each other to who can create the best Christmas advert of the year. So far, there’s been some impressive competitors, John Lewis, Aldi, Sainsbury’s and more releasing their adverts ready to catch some attention. But, what do the general public of Twitter think?
John Lewis and Waitrose
I’d be lying if I said I didnt shed a little tear during the 2019 John Lewis Christmas advert featuring Edgar the Excitable dragon. Just me?
when John Lewis release yet another Disappointing Christmas advert that’s nowhere near as good as their Penguin or Man on the Moon ones from years back pic.twitter.com/VcTLs7RjUI

This year Sainsburys have recieved mix reactions for their Christmas Advert. The message behind is to do something good at Christmas time. But what did Twitter users think?
I love the new @sainsburys advert, it surpasses all the others, mainly because it doesn’t have an annoying ear worm along with it.
It’s just ironic because Sainsbury’s have been robbing us all for years with their high prices 🤣#sainsburys #christmas #christmasadverts

Dancing vegetables? Say no more. The puns are fantastic but can’t help but think that those talking brussel sprouts are a little bit creepy. Oh, and did I mention Robbie Williams is involved.

Time travelling Tesco van delivering the food to Winston Churchill. Tesco create a back to the future style advert leaving you to say, ‘What the Dickens?‘
I’m sorry but the Tesco Christmas advert is very unrealistic. Speaking as a previous employee, lets be honest if you took the Dotcom van home, you’d get sacked

What would Christmas be without a healthy competition of Christmas adverts?
Will anyone beat the Sainsbury’s Christmas advert of 2018 with the boy dressed as a plug jumping into the socket 😂😂🔌
