Not going to make it home for Christmas? You won't want to watch this video.

Even if you weren’t born yet, this ad will make you nostalgic for the decade when everything was permanently grey – except the warm glow of your Mammy’s love.

IF THE BAD weather means you’re going to be missing out on Mammy’s Christmas pudding this year, then you won’t want to watch this ad, brought to you by the ESB sometime in the 1980s.

Complete with obligatory grey Irish skies, a packed hotpress and the leccy blanket…even if you weren’t born yet, this will make you nostalgic for the decade taste forgot. You can almost smell her soda bread baking in the oven in the oven, can’t you?

Let us know how your Christmas plans have been affected by the bad weather >
