Cutest Ad Shows Why Everyone Needs A Home For The Holidays

All this rabbit wants for Christmas is to be safe - and he ends up with so much more.

A heartwarming holiday commercial shows why a loving home for the holidays is so important. The ad, which was released last year for Netherlands book and electronics retailer Bol.com, tells the story of a small pet rabbit named Flappie who lives in a hutch in a family's yard.

Over the course of the commercial, Flappie watches apprehensively as his family prepares for the holiday season, including looking up a recipe for rabbit and setting the dinner table. When the father finally comes to fetch Flappie for the holiday celebration, the little rabbit braces himself for the worst - but ends up with something so much better.

The commercial is likely a reference to a Dutch Christmas song called "Flappie," which tells the story of another Christmas rabbit but ends in a decidedly more macabre way. We couldn't be happier that this ad takes a happier turn - and shows why the most important thing to be grateful for this holiday season is a home.

Unfortunately, there are still thousands of animals who aren't so lucky.
