The 10 John Lewis Christmas Ads Ranked

The 10 John Lewis Christmas Ads Ranked

7 Nov 2017

John Lewis launched their first Christmas advert in 2007. Ten years later and the annual commercial has become a festive event kick starting the countdown to the big day.

Usually dropping fairly sharp during the first week of November, it's one of the first major Christmas ads that we can expect on our screens. 

They're often emotional and touching, and we wouldn't have them any other way. 

Over the years we've had characters like the Man on the Moon, Monty the Penguin and Buster the Boxer along with soundtracks from Ellie Goulding, Tom Odell, The Vaults and Lily Allen.

No matter how wide ranging the story lines have been one thing remains the same, you're probably, definitely going to cry. Tissues at the ready...
