We might not have snow yet in Devon, but The Snowman always starts Christmas for me. I can’t wait for the new creation: The Snowman and the Snowdog which will be aired on Channel 4 on Christmas Eve at 8pm. A real family event.
The Snowman is magical, spiritual, funny, poignant, sweet, Christmassy. What can I say? It’s a classic, up there with It’s a Wonderful Life , Home Alone and Elf. And I’m guessing the new one will be a treat. Raymond Briggs is an absolute delight.
