Default The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

I love this time in Montreal.

The city speaks English for a few weeks....
The ladies are walking around half-naked....

And, most of all, I find some American coins in my change!!!!!!!!! Woo Hoo!!!!!!

And a footnote....

We have this absolutely HYSTERICAL commercial here for Office Depot (Bureau en Gros) or Staples in the USA....

The Christmas song "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year" by Andy Williams is playing....

A father in the throes of ecstasy is doing a shopping cart ballet, filling the cart with school supplies, whilest his two very sullen-looking children look on.....

It's one of my all-time favourite commercials, and should begin to air soon, when the back-to-school sales start. Does it air south of the border?

Yes, Cynic, that is my favourite commercial too - look forward to it every year!
There's another one airing on French TV that is hilarious. A woman with the hiccups is pouring a glass of chocolate milk for her husband who is eating breakfast and reading the paper in the background. She turns around to hand him the milk and he suddenly jumps and goes "AAARRRGH!!" to scare her out of her hiccups. The glass of choclolate milk goes flying up in the air and all over the floor. I think the product ad is for paper towels, but I'm ususally laughing too hard to notice!

As for Montreal this time of year? There's no better place to be if you like festivals!!

Love the Staples commercial. I work at WalMart and we already have back to school stuff out. Everytime I leave my cash office and walk the store, I start to sing the song.
