The holidays are here and one of the most popular television commercials has gotten a bit of an update. The famous Hershey Kiss bell ringer spot has a 2020 vibe to it.

People were not happy that the TV ad has a sleek, new look to it.

The original has been on for years, and even I have to admit that I look forward to seeing it on TV each year. It truly feels like Christmas when you see it come on the screen. There are some traditions that are just part of the fabric of the season. Do you remember the uproar when it was announced that Charlie Brown Christmas was pulled from network television? Thankfully, it has been saved by PBS who agreed to play it.

Recently, there has been a lot of talk about the commercial that features the husband who surprises his wife with two new vehicles, a truck, and an SUV. Wouldn't it be nice to be able to buy/lease two new cars at once!!? Even though it seems far fetched, it has become a bit of a tradition to see it this time of the year.

I grew up in Western New York and one of the commercials that I always looked forward to when we were kids was the Brand Names commercial. "Bring Brand Names home for the holidays!" I still sing it when I hear that store come up in conversation.
