It’s definitely getting near to Christmas when you see the John Lewis Christmas advert. I love them because they don’t bombard you with the stuff they’re selling like the other shops do.

So here’s this year’s advert called The Journey where a little girl’s snowman goes on his own personal journey but I won’t spoil it and tell you why. 

Just watch the advert and listen to the lovely version of The Power of Love by Gabrielle Aplin. Much nicer than the Frankie Goes to Hollywood's version! 

Want to see some earlier ones?
