The only reason the doom sayers don't like the Iceland add is because they haven't removed palm oil from their products and their sales would decrease. I have sponsored orang-utans for many years, International Animal rescue linked below, featured in Daily mail and on TV. In fact I sometimes don't bother with Xmas pressies and send it to the Rang tans! I am sooooo popular at Christmas with my friends for that one!
It's a disgrace it's banned when we have cruelty to cats - Mog one year !!

On the subject of all things Christmas, what is your go to Christmas song that you play first, that one that gets you in the Christmas mood, mine had got to be fairytale of New York , Iíve just played it for the first time this year, Iím beginning to feel a little bit Christmassy.

I quite like the Macdonalds advert where no one is leaving out carrots for the reindeer so FC takes them to Maccy’s for carrots. Didn’t think it would be Macdonalds doing a festive advert. Some of them are really disappointing this year. Thank goodness for Kevin and his family!
