The glaring singular message I’ve seen in the Christmas holiday ads here in the US (at least the ones I catch most often on Hulu.com) is BUY, BUY, BUY!
I miss the warmth of the spirit of the Filipino Christmas, always evident in all holiday commercials, which is all about two of the most important things that we should celebrate: FAMILY and SHARING. Check out the latest holiday ad from Jollibee, the biggest fast food chain in the Philippines (whom I was privileged to work for in the past) and you will understand what I mean. Oh, if you are an overseas Filipino like me, have a tissue or hanky beside you 😉
I wish to come across more US commercials that celebrate that and not the holiday commercial rush. Any leads?
How about you? How are the holiday ads in your corner of the world?
Delirious about delicious,
P.S. If you’re feeling extra generous this holiday season, instead of buy, buy, buy, why not share your blessings to the victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines?
