Walking In The Air

Walking In The Air from The Snowman is one of those songs that I can listen to over and over again. I was happy when I found the album at a thrift store!
The very first time I saw The Snowman was many years ago on PBS, and I fell in love with it, as I'm sure many people have. It's such a wonderful, simple story. I haven't been lucky enough yet to find the book by Raymond Briggs.
I was delighted that the album had the lyrics to the hauntingly beautiful song by Howard Blake:
And some pictures from the book to tide me over until I find a copy:

Of course, I have the video, too - and I'll be watching it this season!
(You probably know this already, but click on the song title at the beginning of my post and it will take you to YouTube so you can see and listen to the excerpt from the film.)

I don't know that one well, what a pretty song!! Have you heard of 'Elf on the Shelf"? I just heard of that and may get it for the Grandkids.
