Recent customers were a young couple, who were talking about suitable Christmas films for their four year old boy.
“The Snowman” was my suggestion.
“Ooh, no!” said the man. “No way. It scared me when I was little.”
“It scared you?!” I exclaimed, incredulously.
“Yes,” he replied. “That bit when they are flying through the air, and that creepy song is playing.”
“What, that creepy song sung by the young choir boy, Aled Jones?” I enquired.
“That’s the one,” said the man. “And don’t be fooled by his age. Evil comes in all shapes and sizes. Whoever sang that was the spawn of Satan.”
There you have it. What I thought was a beautiful story full of Christmas magic actually features a song by the son of Satan. Who knew?!
