The holidays are here and Christmas is only a month away. For many, it’s a precious time of the year to be spent among friends and family. But not everyone has the luxury of spending Christmas with loved ones —and we are sometimes too preoccupied with ourselves and our own busy lives to even notice.
This commercial by German supermarket chain Edeka has an incredibly important message. It has been viewed by close to 20 million viewers, which is an impressive number.
An elderly man prepares to sit alone to eat Christmas dinner. His children always cancel and don’t show up. The video then takes two sudden twists.
The first will make you cry with sadness — the second with a mix of joy and relief. This timely commercial is a real eye-opener and I think it serves as an important reminder to everyone on how important it is to show your loved ones just how much you care, right here, right now.
