Well I was hoping to finish this in time for Christmas, but it didn't turn out that way and what originally started out as an idea that I thought I could animate in about a half a day, evolved into an enormous endless slog. Oh well I still love it anyway even if it was a giant waste of my time and I encourage everyone to share it even if Christmas is over. After all there are a lot of important lessons to be learned in the animation.
Anyway here it is... my animated Christmas Card to all my friends an family. An extended scene from "It's a Wonderful Life" as I imagine it should have been.
