After all of this year's Christmas commercials and festive TV spots, you'd think that you'd be in the Christmas spirit already. However, if you're not yet, we've got just the animation for you. Using adorable stop motion to tell the tale of one of Christmas' best loved characters, this will definitely put a smile on your face.

With art direction by Victoria Marenzi and designers Anna Bron and Andres Gutierrez on board, the short was a truly collaborative effort that really brings the spirit of Christmas to life. Let us know if it's done the trick for you, and to get even more in the festive mood, grab this free festive wallpaper.
