The corona pandemic has pushed us to our limits in the past two years. Above all, the needs of children and young people have often been neglected. They missed many formative experiences in order to protect their loved ones. In a four-minute video, the grocery discounter Penny wishes you a piece of youth back just in time for Christmas.
The video definitely gets under your skin and has already been clicked on over half a million times on YouTube. At night a son sits on the dining table with his mother. The son asks: “What do you actually want for Christmas?” The wish baffles. “I wish that you don’t always hang around at home, that you just sneak out, that we don’t know where you are.” Usually such moments scared parents. But it is also those moments that define youth. To top it all off, the mother and her son hug each other to Bon Jovi’s “It’s my life!”
