There are some advertising campaigns that transcend time and live in our holiday-associated memories for, like, ever. They bring us back to the good old days, when Christmas shopping didn't stress us out to the point of hair loss and Thanksgiving dinner just wasn't our problem. For laughs (like the Target Two-Day Sale ad above, love her) or for that warm, fuzzy feeling we associate with the season, these little gems truly deliver.
So as you tactically plan your next mall mission or click your way through the Internet retail-verse, take a moment to look back on some of the best holiday commercials we've ever seen. Oh, and one involving dirty Mrs. Claus, a snowman and...well, you'll see.
