Have you seen the new John Lewis Christmas advert?

Nothing heralds the start of Christmas like the John Lewis advert.

This year’s advert tells the beautiful story of one boy and his penguin. Featuring the amazing vocals of Tom Odell, this is a story all about friendship and the joy of giving someone you love something they’ll love.

Sam and Monty are the very best of friends. Sam thinks he knows just what Monty is dreaming of for Christmas… something that will make one little penguin’s perfect Christmas day.

Watch the advert below and tell us what you think – we love it!
