With Christmas just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to reflect on what’s truly important in life. Most of us have very busy lives, and traveling to see all of our family members for the holidays isn’t always possible. However, this powerful video will make you think twice before you turn down an invitation to your parent’s or grandparent’s house for Christmas.

The German supermarket chain EDEKA created this ad so that people worldwide would remember the true meaning of the holiday season, and take the time to celebrate with their family. The ad starts with a disappointed father getting a message from his daughter that she and her children wouldn’t be able to make it this Christmas, and that they’d come next year instead.

We will let the rest of this “Christmas Story” unfold in the video below.

This Christmas, please remember to spend time with those you love; life goes by so fast, and we only get so many chances to embrace our loved ones, laugh with them, and create memories. In the midst of your holiday shopping and errands, don’t forget about what truly matters this Christmas.

If you like the message in this video, please share it with your friends and family for the Christmas holiday.
