The Original Snowman and his new friend The Snow Dog!

The Snowman has got to be one of my all time favourite christmas films. Not only does it bring back fond memories of Christmas as a child but it gives me that warm and humbling christmassy feeling without a doubt every single year. Raymond Briggs first published the original story of The Snowman in 1982, and it is perhaps his best-loved creation so far. The beautifully drawn illustrations tell the enchanting story without words and really capture the true magic of Christmas.

“... One winter's night, a snowman comes to life and a magical adventure begins..."

If you have never had the pleasure of reading or watching the snowman, then I am afraid I am not going to try to tell you the wonderful story myself, but I will share the following quote by Raymond with you and below is a link to watch the video:

"I remember that winter because it had brought the heaviest snows I had ever seen. Snow had fallen steadily all night long and in the morning I woke in a room filled with light and silence, the whole world seemed to be held in a dream-like stillness. It was a magical day... and it was on that day I made the Snowman."

So as you can imagine I was delighted to hear of the new film featuring the adorable 'Snowdog' with his odd socks for ears. Below are a few images to give you a sneak preview.
