It's that magical time of year... Festive music, mulled wine, and retailers doing whatever they can to sell their products for the Christmas season.
Every year, all kinds of companies unveil their annual Christmas TV advert. Some are cute and heartwarming, others are super festive and bombastic, and some are just downright odd.
It can be tricky to keep up with them all, so we've collected them all in one place:
The supermarket chain has gone all Dickensian with their 'Nicholas the Sweep' ad, which tells a "totally true story".
The tongue-in-cheek ad features kids explaining the true meaning of Christmas, making us feel very festive.
M&S has focused on the December staple of Christmas jumpers for their 2019 ad.
It's full of brilliant dance sequences, set to the tune of the surprisingly unfestive 'Jump Around' by House of Pain.
Asda have also gone for child actors in their 'Let's Make Christmas Extra Special' ad, following a girl and her brother creating some Christmas magic to their neighbourhood.
You can't have Christmas without Kevin the Carrot, right?
This year, Kevin finds himself in a Peaky Blinders parody as he faces off against a gang of sprouts, all to the tune of 'Let Me Entertain You' by Robbie Williams.
If you need to hire someone extra festive for your Christmas advert, you've hit the jackpot if you get Mariah Carey.
