More Christmas commercial(-ism?) nostalgia

“They do exist.”

– Santa, in this classic M&Ms Christmas commercial

But, here’s the British version (below). Because who doesn’t love the yellow M&M with a British accent? Side-note: Santa still has American accent. ‘Cause he’s Uh-Mer-Can.

A splendid laugh

“Really, for a man who had been out of practice for so many years it was a splendid laugh!”

– Charles Dickens, A Christmas CarolDecember 1843
(The narrator may be my favorite character in that book.)

Preface

HAVE endeavoured in this Ghostly little book, to raise the Ghost of an Idea, which shall not put my readers out of humour with themselves, with each other, with the season, or with me. May it haunt their houses pleasantly, and no one wish to lay it.

Their faithful Friend and Servant,
C. D.
