The calm before the storm

OK, so we've had the first wave of Christmas commercials, with the very nicely done IKEA musical number appearing on high-rotation, but this is just the beginning. Usually everything kicks off soon after November 11th, once Remembrance Day is out of the way, and we still haven't seen M&S and Tesco (amongst others) play their hands yet.

That's a good enough pretext for a bit of nostalgia, isn't it? Here's a selection of ads from 1983. There's a bit of everything: booze, chocs, presents, and rounding off with a Woolworths Christmas ad the like of which we haven't seen from them for decades, nor will we do so again post-administration.
