Christmas Telly is in full swing here in Britain while Christmas gets ever closer. Our coolest discovery so far this year is a cartoon made in the 1980’s called The Snowman, based on a book of the same name. It’s about a boy who has an adventure with the snowman he builds, when it comes to life. It’s lyrical and beautiful. Very moving – of particular note is the song “Walking on the Air” which will bring a tear to your eye – it’s played everywhere here and it’s worth a listen. Someone has put the whole video on YouTube, it’s about half an hour long and well worth watching. This year, there’s a sequel showing on Christmas eve that we now can’t wait to see.
Isn’t it lovely?
