Christmas Cracker

Christmas Cracker


Also available

The NFB's 18th Oscar®-nominated film.

This short animation consists of three segments that take a playful look at Christmas: a rendition of "Jingle Bells" in which paper cut-out figures dance, a dime-store rodeo of tin toys, and a story of decorating the perfect Christmas tree.

Pedagogical evaluations and study guides are only available to CAMPUS subscribers.
