Mikey is adorable.

Isn't that the music from Andys Dinosaur adventures? (I may watch too much CBeebies)

<sigh>

Not an American holiday.

I liked the advert too.

I thought it was funny.
We have a grey haired bearded Tesco delivery man and always think it seems fitting if he is the one to bring the Christmas delivery.
It seems appropriate that Lur4ch would bring a Halloween one. It made me smile.

That made me laugh a lot. And I don't 'do' Halloween. Apart from my Halloween tree and Bat-mobile

Much, much worse. grin

I hate the ASDA ad. Not sure why they are a family of werewolves...

There are supermarket Halloween adverts???

Are they trying to turn it into another Christmas advert thing where everyone waits for the advert to 'premier' and millions are spent on it's production?

Geordie Samhain is an ancient pagan festival. smile

Christians piggybacked on the main pagan festivals, so they wouldn't lose their traditions if they converted iyswim.

All Hallows' day was made nov 1st. So All Hallows' eve, or Hallowe'en was oct 31.

Christmas & Easter are pagan too. ;)
