During Christmas we gather with extended families and friends. Sometimes these gathering we look forward to other we don’t because some families are dysfunctional. The following ad portrays a family Christmas dinner. I believe that this advertisement does share similarities with Rockwell’s painting. The similarities that are shared between these ads are: they portray a happy family gathering. In both ads family seems united and looks like they enjoy their time together. In the advertisement that I came across, the family idealizes how the family “should” be. Meaning, family is together, happy, enjoy their time together, make time for each other even if its once a year.
On the other hand, I also came across an ad of a mom and a child opening Christmas presents. To my understanding this would be a single mom with her child. The fact that a father is not present in this picture is what draws me to that conclusion. I believe this is an great ad because it give single mother hope to looking forward to celebrating Christmas even though they are not living
