I found this in my newsfeed and thought I'd share. The Christmas ad has become as big as the Christmas number one song over here. Big companies try to outdo one another in the *feels* department, and some lovely short films for Christmas adverts have been made. But this video makes an excellent point:

The clip raises an excellent question, Emma. Of course it's so easy to feel good about ourselves if we can spend a week or so being mostly "nice". Needless to say, there's no real excuse for the other 51 weeks of the year. Why should we need a special season to do the thing that should be routine?
One man's take on life told thru humorous short stories from his childhood on into his mid-50's; from feeling like an outcast in school to being an adult. His intent: hope. Hope in that you shall see, no matter how rough life can seem -and is- at times, that you may be able to enjoy it. Each story will bring a laugh, a smile, a tear, a lesson.

"We Really Need To Laugh" shares “memories which will resonate with many readers. Overall a creative presentation of the author’s life given in a rather sing-song poetic story telling style; a pleasant read"
