RTBN 25 Days of Christmas: Day 20
The Snowman
Rachel
RTBN 25 Days of Christmas is the RTBN staff's irreverent exploration of our collective holiday pop culture traditions.

I'm not going to lie"”in the deep recess of my mind, The Snowman will always remain a well work Christmas book that (I think) had no words. When I did happen upon the television version, I didn't realize that the blonde man guiding me through the recesses of his winter childhood memories was David Bowie.



The Snowman is basically the Inception of childhood Christmas specials, especially from where I sit now. You're making your own childhood memories from someone else's, and sometimes it's difficult, for me at least, to draw the line between the story of the silly red headed boy making a friend unlike any other friend in the deepest snow he can remember and my own childhood.



As we inch ever closer to Christmas, tune in tomorrow for Jordan's discussion of the holidays on Arrested Development.
