Presenting the new Sainsbury’s Christmas Advert. Mog sets off a chain of unfortunate events which almost ruin Christmas for the Thomas family. Can she pull it all back to save the day?

"We worked in partnership with HarperCollins Children's Books and world renowned author and illustrator Judith Kerr to create a Christmas story based on her much loved character Mog. We hope that families will come together this Christmas to enjoy this very special story..."

Whatch the BEHIND THE SCENES video here.


It was Christmas Eve and everyone in the Thomas family was dreaming sweet dreams.

Nicky and Debbie were dreaming about what Santa would bring them.
Mr Thomas was dreaming of a new bat.
Mrs Thomas was dreaming of … something else.

Finally, of course, we have Mog. Mog was not dreaming sweet dreams. Mog was having a nightmare.

"Follow that cat!"

As the neighbours gathered, the fireman told everyone how Mog had saved the day.
"She deserves a medal."
"I think she'd rather have an egg".

But there was no egg for Mog. There was no Christmas at all. At least that’s what they thought.

But everyone else thought that if the Thomas’ and Mog can’t have a Christmas, they can share ours.
So that’s exactly what they all did.
"There you go Mog."
