If you’ve been to a Cineplex to see Movie over the Holidays this year, you’ve probably at some point seen this touching short titled Lily & the Snowman. Unsure what I was watching, I literally thought I was watching a Disney short. It was that good!
The short follows Lily, who as a young girl shares plenty of heartwarming moments with her Snowman, preserving him in a freezer as he whittles away year by year until eventually she grows older and the responsibilities of life take over. Sometimes we lose sight of the person we once were.
The Snowman is metaphorical of anything that means something to you. A piece of your childhood that you miss. A pet that you loved. A friend you lost touch with. A family member you wish was still here.
I was moved to tears even before the Movie I went to see had started and knew I had to look for it on YouTube as soon as I got home. Please watch it below. You won’t regret it.
