John Lewis' Christmas advert for 2023 will be released on 9th November and is titled 'Traditions Grow'.
John Lewis has announced their Christmas advert for 2023 will be released on Thursday, 9th November.
This comes as the retail giant release a teaser clip from the campaign called Traditions Grow which shows a young boy asking his Grandma at a market whether he can purchase a small box.
As we zoom in closer to the box, we see that it is a 'Grow Your Own Perfect Christmas Tree' before the next scene shows someone opening the box to find a large seed.
John Lewis shared the clip, which you can watch below, with the caption: "Christmas begins 9 November 🌱 #TraditionsGrow."
The retailer has become notorious for their heartwarming and creative Christmas adverts over the years, which are usually released every November ahead of the festive period.
With so many iconic ads - including Man on The Moon, Monty the Penguin, The Long Wait and The Bear and the Hare - people are very excited to see what is next.
John Lewis tease 2023 Christmas advert
John Lewis has revealed their Christmas advert for 2023 will be released in full on Thursday, 9th November.
In an email sent to shoppers earlier this month, John Lewis says the Christmas advert is "almost here" and that customers who sign up to become a My John Lewis member can get a first look at the ad.
In the email, they write: "The anticipation is growing... Our new Christmas ad is almost here. Become a My John Lewis member and download our app by 31 October to watch it first on launch day."
John Lewis has said that customers who become a My John Lewis member will be able to see the Christmas advert before everyone else.
You can do this but signing up online - for free - before downloading the app. They suggest you turn on push notifications which means you'll be notified when the advert finally drops.
Last year, the John Lewis Christmas advert was called 'The Beginner' and featured a cover of Blink-182's song All The Small Things by Mike Geier.
The advert tells the story of a man learning how to skateboard, with many of the failings resulting in injuries.
While it is not clear at first why he is trying so hard to perfect this skill, viewers later find out he and his wife are fostering a young girl who has a passion for the hobby. The advert was in partnership with Action for Children and Who Cares? Scotland.
