In this year’s heartwarming John Lewis holiday ad, a boy named Alfie plants a “perfect Christmas tree” seed, hoping for a classic fir. Instead, it grows into Snapper, a giant Venus flytrap. Concerned for safety, Snapper is moved outside to the garden. Yet, on Christmas day, Alfie can’t ignore that Snapper is out in the cold. In a touching moment, he brings a holiday gift to his unconventional friend. As Snapper’s infectious joy spreads, Alfie’s mum, gran, and sister join in the celebration, realizing that the essence of the holiday season lies in embracing change and growth with the ones you love.
