The question is, does it beat last year’s advert starring Buster the Boxer and his animal friends?

The Ideal Home office is definitely split on this one. Our content editor, Jennifer, still ranks the adventures of Monty the Penguin as her favourite ever John Lewis Christmas ad! In case you’ve forgotten, it’s the story of a little boy and his playful penguin friend. When the little boy spots that Monty is more interested in a romantic movie than the snow, he comes up with the ultimate Christmas gift for his chum – a mate!

…while our social media producer Celia thinks that you can’t beat the original viral John Lewis Christmas advert, 2011’s The Long Wait. ‘It reminds me of the anticipation of Christmas as a child, and how exciting it was,’ she says. ‘It also spreads a good message – that Christmas is all about giving.’

Shopping editor Tamara Kelly’s vote goes to The Bear and the Hare, as ‘just the thought of someone who had never seen Christmas made me emotional!’ Bless!
