Watch the new John Lewis Christmas TV advert and see Hare give his best friend Bear a Christmas he'll never forget. 

Set in a beautiful forest, poor Bear is the only animal that never gets to celebrate Christmas because he has to hibernate every year.  However, this year is different. This year Hare has a brilliant idea.
