It's all a metaphor about a child turning away from the assistance and lightness offered by his family, and choosing instead to embrace his inner monster. He decides to switch off the light and welcome back the beast. It's sort of like a kiddy, Christmassy Fight Club. They'll be a follow up ad where the monster hands him a box of matches and a jerry can and they both smile as he heads off to school.

Shops are getting worse, its all decked out for Christmas before Halloween is over these days.

Just gets on my nerves until maybe the week before when you start to feel the Christmas spirit.

John Lewis Advert is always good, but I would never shop there, nearest one too far away :p

I've been doing Christmas since Feb. Thoroughly sick of it.

The steel drum man was out playing jolly Christmas tunes today. It really made me feel a bit festive so I bought myself a mince pie from Boots and had some hot Ribena (it’s supposed to be made hot because it’s mulled wine flavour and says ‘make with hot water’ on the bottle!!) from my travel mug.

This makes me so happy! This is what I would drink last year when I couldn't have wine. Also, it's bloody lovely! Where did you get it from Meems? I might have to get dressed and go shopping!!

My friend bought it for me, she said it’s really hard to get hold of as it keeps selling out everywhere so she went out hunting in branches of Asda until she eventually found two bottles in an Aldi.

Ignore the thumbnail, Rickie is barely in it.

It includes the line "Big head ripping through paper hat". No wonder I like it!

It was slippy and slide walking up the hill last night? Definite ice, and I think there's a small bit of snow in the garden and it looks like the moor has a covering.

Just had my first instancecof someone telling me that it’ll be ‘too cold for snow’ when they travel to Newcastle next week.
