Do you still believe in Santa Claus?



Christmas




最近,John Lewis的圣诞广告《Excitable Edgar兴奋的埃德加》如期而至,带来一个暖心煽情又催泪的故事。


Recently, John Lewis’s Christmas AD, Excitable Edgar, arrived with a heartwarming and tear-jerking story.



故事中,小火龙Edgar总是因为自己的喷火能力,给身边的人不断制造各种麻烦。导致村庄里的人,就连他自己也开始讨厌自己。在圣诞节这天,一直关心并陪伴Edgar的朋友Ava,送给他一个火焰圣诞布丁,让小火龙点燃布丁成为礼物再转送给他人,最终改变了大家的态度。


In the story, the lfire dragon Edgar always makes various troubles to people around him because of his fire-breathing ability. As a result, people in the village, even himself began to hate him. On Christmas day, Edgar’s friend Ava, who has always cared for Edgar and accompanied him, gave him a Christmas pudding with fire. She let the fire dragon lighten the pudding as a gift and then gave it to others, finally changing everyone’s attitude.






Ava与Edgar的友谊让人十分感动。虽然Edgar一直闯祸但Eva一直陪同在它身边支持帮助它,为它送去温暖。


Ava’s friendship with Edgar is very touching. Although Edgar keeps getting into trouble, Eva always accompanies him to support and help him.


说起圣诞节, 圣诞老人也是温暖的化身,他总能把快乐和惊喜带给大家。


Speaking of Christmas, Santa Claus is also the embodiment of warmth, he can always bring joy and surprise to everyone.






儿时,父母总是讲述关于圣诞老人的故事。

只要向圣诞老人许愿,

他就会送来梦寐以求的礼物。

幸运的小朋友还会收到圣诞老人的信。


 Parents always told stories about Santa Claus 

to kids when they were young.

They said: Just make a wish to Santa,

He would send the dream gift to them.

Lucky children would receive letters from him.


儿时的我们,

期待圣诞老人的到来,实现梦想。


When we are young ,we always looking forward 

to the arrival of Santa Claus, 

to make the dream come true.









随着年龄的增长我们才渐渐发现

圣诞节的礼物是妈妈衣橱里藏好的

其实,写给圣诞老人的信没有离开家

被父母永远珍藏在了箱子里……


As we getting older we started to realize

The presents were hidden in mom’s closet

In fact, the letter that written to Santa didn’t leave the house. Letters were hidden in the box by parents……


原来,圣诞老人只是一个美丽的谎言。


Turns out, Santa Claus is just a beautiful lie.






 

毕业后,我们怀揣着梦想进入社会,

随后,洞悉甲方需求,积极配合,展开积极合作。


After graduation we entered the society with dreams,

Then, we learned  to understand the needs of party A,

actively cooperate with and carry out active cooperation


每一轮加班熬夜的头脑风暴

每一个打磨设计稿的夜晚,

每一场通宵达旦的搭建和彩排……


Each brainstorm that stay up late,

Every night of grinding the design draft,

Every time of overnight construction and rehearsal…


每当此时,

总希望圣诞老人能够出现,

这样,睡一觉醒来就能发现惊喜。


At this point,

we always hope that Santa Claus would come,

That way, you can forget all the troubles and find surprise.








然而,醒来发现的惊喜不是圣诞老人,

是加班时队友递来的热咖啡,

是绞尽脑汁设计方案时队友的鼓励,

是带病上战场时队友的陪伴。


However, it wasn’t Santa

that woke up to the surprise,

It’s a hot cup of coffee handed by teammates 

while you working overtime.

It’s the encouragement of teammates 

when you are trying to come up with a plan,

It’s the company of your teammates 

 when you’re sick at work.


突然理解了儿时父母

为我们讲述圣诞老人的故事

为我们准备圣诞礼物,

守护圣诞节的心情。


Suddenly understand the mood of parents

 telling us the story of Santa Claus

Getitng us Christmas presents,

Guarding the mood of Christmas.


原来,圣诞老人一直都在我们身边。


Turns out, Santa Claus is always around us.









小时候,我们总是梦想收到圣诞老人送的礼物。

长大后,我们已成为送给他人温暖的“圣诞老人”。


When we were young, we always dreamed of getting presents from Santa Claus.

When we grow up, we have become the “Santa Claus” who gives warmth to others.


其实,儿时的梦想并未远走。

梦想只是随着我们一起长大了!


In fact, the childhood dream is not far away.

The dream just grew up with us!


圣诞老人是一份爱,是一份奇迹,

是一份希望,是一份欢乐。


Santa Claus is a love, is a miracle,

Is a hope, is a joy.
