Christmas Commercials From Days of Yore

Good morning ad people, and welcome to the last full week before the winter holidays bloat us with wares and calories we want but don’t need. It’ll be like any other late-December, rife with family photos and stories from past holidays &#151 like that time uncle Jim passed out in front of the house after Christmas/Hanukkah/Quanza dinner and the dog peed on his face. Those were good times.

We though we’d do our part to help get you all in the holiday spirit, in true advertising style. There have been myriad holiday cards, microsites and all that, but what we’re really eager to see &#151 nay, dying for you to share &#151 are your favorite holiday commercials. We’ve posted a few classics after the jump, but we want the best for later this week. So, share your favs in the comments section or by e-mailing matt@mediabistro dot com or by using the anonymous tips box.

T’will be fun. Oh, and remember to send them in before Friday, mmmk?
