Why Monty the John Lewis penguin is SO gorgeous!

Plus three more 2014 Christmas adverts we love.

by Carol Muskoron

Yes, the new John Lewis Christmas advert is here and it is two minutes and ten seconds of the most gorgeously animated film. How do they do it every year? Just when you think their plots can't get any cuter, they do.


And although the John Lewis Christmas adverts do veer towards being ridiculously sentimental, they somehow avoid it. The plots that are just intriguing enough to force you to want to know more and to make you want to watch the ad again and again. You might reach for your hanky, but the tears don't fall. Genius!


We love you Monty Penguin! Here's the advert itself and below are three more Christmas adverts - they're good, but we don't rate them nearly as highly as Monty!


Fun and games when children are let loose in the store after closing time!


Starring little Romeo Beckham, this might win the award for the most stylish Christmas advert of the year.


If anything will make a kid want to get a bike, it's this!

Get a present or two now with our online Christmas gift guide - we've rounded up the best presents of the year for all budgets. And although there are no live penguins, you can buy a flock of chickens for charity! Plus we'll have some gorgoeus Christmas penguin ornaments coming soon. Promise.
