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


  1. Lyrics

    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

  2. Merry Christmas, Rose. Keep fighting the good fight.

  3. And Happy Festivus too....
    Cute video.

    Very nice, Rose. Very nice.

  6. 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.

  7. We put this on every year when we decorate the tree. nd

  8. Well, thank you! I had never seen it before. It is lovely.

  9. Ethereal.

    I put the link to Celtic Woman's version you suggested as well. Beautiful.

  10. Merry Christmas! Thank you, Rose.

  11. 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.

  12. It's finally available on DVD: The Raymond Briggs' The Snowman: DVD: David Bowie,Peter Auty,Dianne Jackson by David Bowie,Peter Auty,Dianne Jackson. Raymond-Briggs-Snowman-David-Bowie/dp/B000HIVIOW

  13. Merry Christmas, Rose. Thanks for all your visits and comments throughout this last year.

  14. :) You're the breath of fresh air that reminds me there is still sanity in the world. Merry Christmas, KT

  15. Merry Christmas, Rose. Have a great day with your family.
