I’m not crying. You are. Coca-Cola released a new Christmas commercial that will melt your heart even if you drink Pepsi.

Christmas Quest

The Coca-Cola commercial follows a father on his quest to deliver his daughter’s letter to Santa Claus. The father sets out on an adventure of epic proportions — showing the lengths that a family member will to go for a loved one.

Hallmark has nothing on Coke.

This year, COVID will certainly complicate Christmas. Complicate is an understatement for those who tested positive or lost a loved one. No doubt you’ll be able to relate your COVID journey to the quest of this dad.

This Christmas, give something only you can give.

Be it in person, over an awkward video call, or just a quick message, making time for the ones you love is what makes Christmas truly the most special time of year, no matter how you do it.

Think of the first Christmas and the lengths God went to by sending his one and only Son so we could be saved.

The Real Thing
“For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.” John 3:17

    You made me laugh so hard – I’m not crying, you are! I actually called my parents on Saturday because this commercial and the Etsy commercial came on in the same segment. I was done. Ugly cry and a FaceTime call ensued to remind them how missed they are by all of us.

    I’ve linked the second one here so you can cry again –

    Big hugs to all!

    I saw that Coke commercial a couple of weeks ago…Yes, it made me cry! I have a few Coke collectibles…but, to be honest I like to drink Pepsi over Coke. I won’t say that too loud. I drank Coke as a kid…but, switched to Pepsi later in life. I always feel like the Coke is literally breaking my teeth down as I am drinking it..LOL! Oh well…my secret is out! Wishing you & Jocelyn a very Merry Christmas & a Happy 2021! 😉 <3
