12AdsOfChristmas2018 #3: We're into the realms of the astonishing now. Apple have added a strong plot to their tearjerking Christmas ads as this one encourages you all to show off your talents. Us, we say be great at some things, crap at most things, but give everything a go, and share everything you do - there will always be an audience.

12AdsOfChristmas2018 #6: This is glorious, and if only it were true. If only the Duracell Bunny chased after Santa during Christmas Night putting in batteries into all those toys. Wonderful idea brilliantly executed.

We have a special request just come in. Some of you may recognise the name Colin McGregor - he's contributed a few articles to The Silver Bauble during this Run-Up.

On Sunday, Colin had a heart attack and is currently in hospital going through what needs to be done for him to make a full recovery.

He's just sent us an email asking us to relay his thanks and appreciation to the staff at the Falkirk Royal Infirmary's Intensive Care Unit, plus the paramedics who took him there on Sunday.

Colin says it's a strange experience to spend Christmas in hospital, but the staff gave everyone a gift, and one of the doctors played Christmas carols on his saxophone.

Get well soon, Colin - we hope you have a speedy recovery, and are able to return home soon.

-- Linus & Nick
