The 10 Best Holiday Commercials of All Time

As we get ready to officially kick off the holiday season, we look forward to seeing all kinds of great holiday-themed commercials. We certainly saw some good ones last year. The 2015 holiday commercial season hasn’t really started yet, but to get you in the holiday marketing spirit, let’s take a look at our purely subjective list of the 10 best holiday commercials of all time. We’ve also included the year each of them first aired, which will surely lead a few of us to ask “Has it been that long?!”
Note: the fact that they’re classics also means that some of these commercials are in considerably lower definition that what we’re used to these days.
Folgers — “Peter Comes Home” (1986)
Oreo — “Santa’s Cookies” (1987)
Hershey’s — “Happy Holidays” (1989)
Honey Nut Cheerios — “Scrooge” (1989)
Campbell’s — “Snowman” (1993)
