#1: Sainsbury’s – Mog’s Christmas Calamity 2015 – Watch it below

 Creeping towards the 40 million mark is the most-viewed Christmas advert of all time, Mog’s Christmas Calamity from Sainsbury’s. Using a much-loved children’s character as the main protagonist, Mog is the victim of some unfortunate events that almost sees Christmas ruined for the family.

That’s where Sainsbury’s popular message comes in – Christmas is for sharing. Why does this sound so familiar? His antics result in families coming together over Christmas and the emotional storyline engages and really hits home the true meaning of Christmas.

It’s technically illegal to eat mince pies on Christmas Day in England. In the 17th century, Oliver Cromwell banned Christmas pudding, mince pies and anything to do with gluttony. The law has never been rescinded.
