Keeping the good mood alive here's spreading some Christmas cheer with this week's Xenopulse talking about some of the best Christmas Marketing Campaigns.
🎄 Heineken and their AI-powered social Christmas tree
Heineken took Christmas joy, the moments, the festivities, and the fun one step forward in 2011 with their Social Christmas tree. The Social Christmas Tree hosted personalized Facebook greetings, human tree ornaments, and Christmas tunes.
They created a social Christmas tree with interconnecting LCD screens to be placed at Clarke Quay, Singapore, where anyone could record their message, choose a Christmas card on social tree, which was displayed on the tree as well as their Facebook page.
🎅 Faasos's Christmas giveaway campaign
Faasos, the quick service takeaway restaurant launched a purposeful campaign to drive home the messaging of #WhatifWishes Came True.

Users simply add in details on a virtual tag and hit find my gifts.
🧐 Starbucks’ eco friendly christmas campaign
During Christmas 2017, Starbucks launched its reusable red cup campaign. These cups reflect the Christmas vibe and holiday excitement and were made with 50% recycled content.
They gave out free limited-edition reusable red cups to customers who ordered a holiday beverage. These beverages are given specific hashtags – #IrishCreamColdBrew – which users then upload on their social media handles.
The reusable red cup has now become a tradition for customers each holiday season and is a step towards reducing single-use cup waste and also contributes towards an environment-friendly planet.
