Merry and bright

This is one of my all-time Christmas favorites. Whenever I’m home for the holidays, I dust off our trusty VHS copy (which is probably older than some of you) and we snuggle up to watch. I think it’s the simplicity of the story that makes it so lovely. No words, just wonder. When “Walking in the Air” starts, I get chills every single time. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Have a wonderful day filled with love and joy. Merry Christmas, all.

WOW!!! I had never heard of THE SNOWMAN before so this was a pleasant surprise. My favorite has always been A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS. Merry Christmas to all and to all a goodnight!

That is my favourite Christmas film ever! For me, it isn't Christmas without The Snowman and Little Women. They are just so wonderful.

This was MY FAVORITE when i was young! I even had "the snowman" stuffed animal that now belongs to my little brothers. I haden't seen it or even really thought about it this hectic year. Thank You for that moment of childhood joy! One of my favorite parts is when he tries on the pineapple nose. That and when he cross dresses in the mom's clothes. Merry Christmas and have an awesome new year!

If you like The Snowman then you'll love this Irn Bru advert which spoofs it brilliantly.

And if you enjoyed that you can find a few more Irn Bru ads here (check out the ram-raiding granny!)
