There are many things that remind people of Christmas. To some is seeing Christmas light, the smell of pine trees, snow... to me, it's all about the TV commercials. Not the 'in your face' ones we have now, but the classics that can bring me back to a time when I was a kid, myself. Here are five Christmas commercials that bring back great memories for me. Maybe they will for you, too.

    Ice Skating from the 80s

    There's something we can all relate with the kid in the back who can't catch up. As a kid I could swear they were skating in some outside ice meadow. Looking at the set now certainly dates itself which is probably why they don't currently show this commercial on TV. Maybe it's time for a re-make.

    Fruity Pebbles

    "Ho Ho Ho, I'm Hu-Hu-Hungry" from the 80s

    I'm not sure what "Yabba Dabba Fruity-licious do (or dew)" means, but when I saw this, I knew Christmas was on the way.

    Hershey Kisses

    The Bells

    You don't even need to watch the video to know which one this is. I saw it for the first time this year yesterday and immediately wanted to break out the hot chocolate underneath my yet-to-be-erected Christmas tree.

    Santa sure does love him some Oreo's - ate them all. Usually Santa just takes a bite and leaves the rest of the cookie to prove he took a bite. This commercial was during a time when they had Oreo's and Double Stuf Oreos, they didn't have the Christmas red ones in the 80s.

    Campbell's Soup

    Who hasn't felt like that snowman after playing outside during the winter. You come in, bones stiff, hair frosted. Soup is a great way to warm up. As a kid I saw this commercial. My thought was "his mom is gonna be made that he's getting slush all over the floor."
