As well as Debenhams’ “fabulous” offering, the other commercial we look forward to every winter comes courtesy of John Lewis. You know the holidays really are round the corner when two of our favourite retailers bust out the Christmas ads.

As usual, John Lewis’s Christmas advert – which this year is called “The Journey” – is a touching, moving, magical thing, with another expertly chosen musical piece in the background. This time round, the musical magic is a cover of the classic Frankie Goes to Hollywood song Power of Love, which is beautifully sung by 20-year-old Gabrielle Aplin.

We’re not gonna lie, it definitely pulled on our heart strings, but those are honestly not tears in our eyes….nope. Just been casually cutting onions… at 11:30 am, in the office… that’s our story and we’re sticking with it.

Watch the commercial right now and follow the snowman’s Christmas journey… all will be revealed at the end of the advert. Enjoy!
