    The Snowman

    The Little Steps Team Ultimate Family Holiday Movie List

    Written by Raymond Briggs and originally published in 1978, this wordless children's story was brought to life in 1982 and became a Christmas classic ever since. It tells the story of a boy who builds a snowman on a cold winter's day in his parent's garden and who comes to life at the stroke of midnight. They build a short-lived friendship as the boy takes him round his house while everyone sleeps and in turn the snowman flies the boy around the South Downs and Brighton in the UK.

    • Picked by: Marya, Editor Hong Kong and Macau
    • Reason: "I will always remember the first time I watched The Snowman as a child on a cold Christmas day morning in our home in London and my parents explaining to us the ending. Hearing the theme song "Walking in the air" still gives me and my brothers goosebumps till this day! And that was a long time ago!"
