Some of this video i didn't like because some just weren't relevant to the world around us like "always put the toilette seat down, I mean i don't see who that could be relevant to. Some of the morals were quite good though
My favourite one was probably "don't put someone out of hope if thats all they have", because its true if your on your own waiting for someone to help you then there not going to have someone to comfort them just the hope someone is coming.

This video is really good because it tells us the good things we have to do and the bad things we must not do. The best sentence I like the most is "Remember the birthdays without the help of Facebook".One reason why I like this slogan is because when you greet someone and you do not forget to buy a present, this person feels important and very happy. That's why we put in agendas the birthdays of our mates, teachers, relatives and important people in our lives.

I liked the video because it related to giving thanks and it had many really good advices.
I believe that they want to make people stop for a moment and to think.
I had three favorite advices: “Keep your promises”,
“Skype your mother and father” and “Never refuse homemade brownies”. I liked these advices because they are simple and caring advices.
The video made me feel happy and I liked the relaxing background music.
They said do not give a fruitcake to anyone, but I did not understand what they meant.
