This German Christmas Commercial Will Make You Cry While You Remember What’s Really Important This Holiday

Make sure you have your tissues ready before you watch this commercial!

We all know the holidays are busy, but a German supermarket chain called Edeka has created a new commercial that will not only make you cry like a little baby, but it’ll also make you stop to remember what’s really important this holiday season.

The commercial opens with an elderly man receiving a phone call from his daughter and grandchildren, informing him that they won’t be making it for Christmas dinner this year. They then show the man having Christmas dinner alone, over and over, while his children all continue to lead their busy lives.

The commercial then takes a sad turn, and while I won’t ruin the ending, it’s something you truly need to watch. It definitely puts things in perspective this holiday season, and I promise you’ll be running to hug your loved ones when it’s done. It’s a reminder that we should never allow ourselves to get so busy we forget what’s truly important in our lives.

Watch the commercial below, but remember to have those tissues!
