Watching Coca-Cola ad has got me in the festive mood

Surely, holding a door open for a member of either sex is just good manners?

LESLEY KEATING: Would you dare hold a door open for a woman?

Have your say

I think I’ve been very good this year. Usually I start mentioning Christmas around summertime as I get so excited about it.

But for some reason that just hasn’t happened this year and I’ve been wondering why.

I think I know. This time last year, my partner Matt and I were off on our four-month round-the-world adventure.

I had to get used to the fact we weren’t going to be here for Christmas, so I tried to block it out.

Although we spent Christmas Day on a beach in Malaysia, it wasn’t really like Christmas at home.

So I guess because I wasn’t really here for it last year, I just haven’t felt like getting in the festive mood this time around.

Until I saw the Coca-Cola TV advert. Now I can’t wait!
