Can you believe Christmas is nearly here? We have no idea what happened between Easter and now, but this year has flown. But as everyone knows it's not really Christmas until the adverts start.

Here were the best adverts from last year's Christmas to get you in the mood...

John Lewis - The Journey





This heart-warming advert moved some people to tears, especially with Gabrielle Aplin providing such beautiful and haunting vocals with her cover of Frankie Goes to Hollywood's classic Power of Love.

The fact that this Snowman's journey has now been turned into children's book kind of makes it clear just how epic this advert is. We can never look at snow men in the same way anymore. Our snow men will always have a lady friend thanks to good old John Lewis.

Barneys - Electric Holiday





US superstore Barneys got a little helping hand from Disney in their colourful Christmas campaign.

The short film called Electric Holiday features a host of famous Disney characters as well as Disnefied versions of Lady Gaga, Sarah Jessica Parker, Naomi Campbell and more.

Plus Minnie and the rest of the cartoons look fierce on the runway!

Asda - Christmas doesn't happen by magic





This advert might have gotten quite a few complaints but we can't help but like that Asda decided to honour all the hard working mums who busted their butts off to create a perfect Christmas meal for the family. We love you mum.

Waitrose - Christmas





We grow up big, we're only going to shop at Waitrose (and M&S of course). Their simple no fuss charity focused advert must have made all the other stores wince at the budget that they chose to spend on their ads this year.

Well played Waitrose, well played.

Coca-Cola - The Holidays Are Coming





There is no advert that can ever reach the levels of the Coca-Cola ads. It's official that Christmas doesn't actually start until this is played. And that's just fact...
