    Lovely animated film advising people of the last posting dates for Christmas.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Christmas is Coming"

    Beautifully animated short film made with paper cut outs to remind people of the last dates for posting cards and parcels for Christmas.

    Santa Claus / Father Christmas goes on strike because people didn't post early last year. Two of his helpers go to tell St Peter who says everything will be all right because people will leave plenty of time this year. He gives them the correct posting dates. The helpers go back to tell Santa who happily agrees to carry out his yearly delivery duties. We see Santa's reindeer and sleigh flying across the sky.
