merry (retro animated) christmas
I was asked recently what my favourite Christmas movie is; I really don’t have a favourite Christmas movie but each year I LOVE to watch the retro animated and stop-motion TV specials. These low-tech productions hearken back to a simpler time and bring back fond memories of my childhood. Here are some scenes and songs from my favourites – enjoy! And feel free to sing along with me…
At this special time, I reflect on the important things in life, and how fortunate I am to have such supportive family and friends. Although the holidays this year feel a little daunting with the recent passing of my father, I know his spirit lives on in our wonderful, loving memories. So with warm thoughts of cherished family and friends, I wish everyone the greatest of joy and love today and always.
