Brace yourselves, the holiday ads are in full swing!  These are our favorites of the season, so far!

1.  Buster The Boxer

This is the story of a little girl called Bridget who loves to bounce. When her parents buy her a trampoline for Christmas, they soon discover that she isn’t the only one with a passion for jumping.

2.  Coming Home For Christmas

Throughout their 70 years, Heathrow have specialized in reconnecting people with their loved ones, especially at this time of year, because coming home for Christmas is the best gift of all. Among the millions of seasonal passengers, there are some extra-special arrivals that have made it home in time for the big day.

3. La Machine à Remonter le Temp

Milka's ad revolves around a little boy who's so excited about Christmas, he builds a time machine to try and speed things along. His family, seeing him set the date for Christmas Eve, plays along and makes Christmas come early.  They go as far as cutting down a tree, wrapping gifts, and of course, taking all the Milka chocolates out of the Advent calendar.

4.  Spain's State Lottery

A retired schoolteacher, Carmina, mistakenly believes that she and her community have won the draw—the day before it actually happens. Carmina makes the rounds of the village and builds a crowd of celebrants while her reluctant family follows, alternately convincing people to play along ... and bracing themselves for the best time to tell her the truth.

5. Nothing Beats the Perfect Aussie Christmas

A household of festive sweater-wearing Americans called the "Tinkletons" invade an Australian household telling them how not to do Christmas. As they descend with tinsel, reindeer and fake snow, they pop up creepily all over the house, scolding the family for BBQ-ing prawns on Christmas day, inappropriately summery clothing and hanging out in swimwear. But then, there's a twist.
