MORE ON MY WORDFUL WEDNESDAY THIS WEEK:


Today, I'm adding a bit more to my "Wordful Wednesday" post other than the photo of the day. Well, it's that time of year again...I had to add my favorite of all time commercials. I don't drink that much beer, but this commercial --from a couple of decades ago--- I would stop what I was doing...no matter WHAT I was doing, the very instant I heard the first bell; the first note. I swear, commercials don't bring tears to my eyes on any normal day, but this one...yes, this one did and still does!!! It's the nostalgia of the simpler times. Of strong family bonds and the real celebration of Christmases past. Besides, this house at the very end of the path is so near to a replica of my Grandmother's house!! Ohhhhhhhh, the good old days!! I love the commercial after all these years and make it a tradition to add it to my sidebar each year.

  4. I can't believe that ad was from 1981. It seems like just yesterday! It's so timeless they could play it today. I always liked it too; thanks for posting it!

  14. Nice shot of the sun making an appearance - looks like early morning to me.

    I don't normally associate Christmas season with beer (that's for October), but I can see why the commercial moves you so.

    Happy WW!

  15. Love the picture! Also the ad, but wish it was advertising something other than alcohol. I have a real hate relationship with anything alcoholic. But it is a great ad.
