It's just not Christmas

Since it started broadcasting in the UK 23 years ago, Channel Four has shown "The Snowman" every Christmas Day.  I remember Jeremy Isaacs saying that as long as he was controller of Channel Four it would be guaranteed a place in the schedule, and in fact it has long outlasted his involvement with the channel.

Obviously I wasn't in Hong Kong in 1982, but I seem to recall that it has been a regular in the Christmas TV schedules (on TVB Pearl, I think) since I've been here.  Not this year, as far as I can see (and I hope they're not showing it after Christmas).  It's not as if the schedules are packed full of other superior seasonal fare (as if anything could be better than "The Snowman"), so I don't think they've got any excuses.

Oh, and Happy Christmas

Cannot agree more! Give us back Snowman! and A Christmas Carol cartoon (not the Walt Disney one)!
