Christmas commercials here, there, and everywhere

Santa Claus is not the only global sensation that gets people during the holidays: Christmas commercials add to the fun.

Kids and advertising agencies around the world enthusiastically anticipate the overnight gift-giving binge for weeks leading up to the annual celebration honoring the humble birth of a Jewish carpenter 2,019 years ago.

After selectively surveying the World Wide Web, Reel Chicago has compiled a compendium of eye-catching Christmas commercials and described it with annoying alliteration for your yuletide yuk yuks.
