HortonI’m not quite sure why, but the days before and just after Christmas are the perfect time for me to watch animated cartoons (is that the right term to use?). Somehow it’s the perfect moment to snuggle under a woolly blanket on the sofa, pick up the remote, and start watching a cartoon on the TV or from a DVD. There may also be some Christmas chocolates involved …

This year, I started the round with Horton Hears a Who!, which a friend lent me and which I thought adorable.

Further on the to-be-watched list are Up, the first Toy Story (hard to believe, but I’ve never watched it!), Ice Age 3, Coraline, and Pinocchio.

What are your favorite animated cartoons? Do you like to watch them at Christmastime, too?
