Apparently, it took Amazon 30 seconds to ruin Christmas for some people.
The new ad Amazon released has impacted many parents across the UK. Some people believe Amazon has taken away the spirit of Christmas by removing Santa from the scene.
The short, 30-second commercial shows a dad coming home carrying several Amazon boxes — presumably, Christmas presents that were dropped off by a delivery person. Then when he hears his kids upstairs, he sneaks into another room hiding the presents from his kids.
Many parents are up in arms about this because when kids see this ad they are seeing that the parents are the ones providing the gifts, not Santa. Many parents took to social media to express their frustration.

An Amazon spokesperson responded with a statement to the Daily Mail saying:
"Father Christmas and his elves are no doubt working around the clock to get presents to girls and boys around the world. These are just a few extra to give a little love from parents.”
