Christmas ads, then and now.

Christmas isn’t what it used to be, that much is certain. Case and point: TV advertisements. Or, more specifically: holiday TV ads. Just a few, short decades ago, holiday advertising on television was about bringing the family together, giving gifts, and generally being happy. You would be hard‒pressed to find a holiday ad from the 80s that didn’t include a smiling child, a happy melody, or people hugging each other. Now days you get…well, moms ganging up on Santa Claus. See for yourself in this YouTube video.
