Merry Christmas

Raymond Briggs, The Snowman (about 28 minutes) Enjoy.
(Shorter version, about 9 minutes) - the song, Walking in The Air, from The Snowman

From Carol: Celtic Woman - Chloe Agnew - Walking In The Air

We're walking in the air
We're floating in the moonlit sky
The people far below are sleeping as we fly

I'm holding very tight
I'm riding in the midnight blue
I'm finding I can fly so high above with you

Far across the world
The villages go by like dreams
The rivers and the hills
The forests and the streams

Children gaze open mouth
Taken by surprise
Nobody down below believes their eyes

We're surffing in the air
We're swimming in the frozen sky
We're drifting over icy
Mountain floating by

Suddenly swooping low on an ocean deep
Arousing of a mighty monster from its sleep

We're walking in the air
We're floating in the midnight sky
And everyone who sees us greets us as we fly

Thank you, Rose. I am going to write a blog post about my experience that I had while watching this movie on your blog. Peace, love, and a very Merry Christmas to you!
Blessed Be.

This is the original version of the song. It was Peter Auty's voice. His voice had broken, preventing him performing it since then. Aled Jones (who's younger) later released it as a single and took all the fame.
