It has become a little bit of a Christmas tradition here at Jammy Toast that each year we like to watch The Snowman. Every year we like to sit down and enjoy the story by Raymond Briggs. To us, it is the highlight of Christmas Day and so it would appear it is to others also as the film was voted 4th in UKTV Gold’s Greatest TV Christmas Moments. The Snowman is based on the children’s book by author Raymond Briggs, which was first published in 1978. In 1982, the book was turned into a 26-minute-long animated movie by Dianne Jackson for Channel 4. It was first shown late on Christmas Eve in 1982 and proved an immediate success for the then fledgling channel. The film was nominated for the Academy Award for Animated Short Film in 1982.
