Have you ever seen The Snowman? It started as a children's book by English author Raymond Briggs published in 1978. In 1982 it was turned into a 26-minute animated movie by Dianne Jackson. The film was nominated for an Oscar for best animated short in 1983.
Of course I wasn't aware of all this when it was given to my sister and I by my Uncle Bill when we were very small. We didn't get to see him much when we were little kids; he was ill and living in Chicago. We were living in South Carolina. One year he sent us this video and not long after he passed away. I remember being so enthralled by it. The whole concept of a snowman was foreign considering we lived in the South, and the magic of the story still captures me today. I always think of my Uncle Bill when I see it. Aaron gave me the DVD and am looking forward to watching it very soon.
Though not how it appears in the original movie, I love this rendition of "Walking in the Air" by George Winston.
I was looking for videos of it on youtube and came across versions introduced by David Bowie. Very cool. Take a look.
