What's it about?
Each Christmas, Santa and his vast army of highly trained elves produce gifts and distribute them around the world in one night. However, when one of 600 million children is missed, it is deemed ‘acceptable’ to all but one-- Santa’s misfit son, Arthur.
Why do we love it?
An underrated modern Christmas classic, We have so much love for the message it shares, the warmth that it gives off, the characters, the animation, the sharp script, the whole Britishness of the whole thing. You just can't beat it.
