BERLIN, GERMANY - NOVEMBER 28: An participant dressed as Santa Claus attends a gathering of volunteer student Santas and angels on November 28, 2015 in Berlin, Germany. The Studentenwerk Berlin, a student organization at the city's technical university (Technische Universitaet Berlin), sends out between 400 and 500 students and alumni dressed as Santas every year to visit company parties in December and families on Christmas Eve. The students, who must complete the workshop, participate as a way to make a little money to help fund their studies. (Photo by Adam Berry/Getty Images)

I was getting ready for work, the television playing in the background and then it came on. I have to watch it every time it plays. There is something so nostalgic about Hershey Kisses playing “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.”

Do you know why it’s so nostalgic?

Because for every Millennial or those maybe even a little older, we don’t remember a holiday without  it. Rightfully so because after a little research (um, I just went to google) it turns out this commercial first aired in 1989! (Hey, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!)

To give you a little more perspective, it’s officially older than Taylor Swift, Kelsea Ballerini, Kane Brown, Lauren Alaina and Shay (but not Dan) just to name a few. TV shows like FRIENDS hadn’t even been scripted out yet, Boybands hadn’t made a comeback, we weren’t even sure what an mp3 was in 1989, let alone a text message or an iPad.

Those 11 little Hershey Kisses, dare I say it, hold a sort of innocence. They’re only on the screen for 16 seconds, but it’s a blissful 16 seconds that I think we can all agree must continue to play every holiday from here on out. Also, the one that has the challenge of that last note deserves a raise after all this time…
