Watch Incredible Stop-Motion Christmas Ski Village Come to Life

A little holiday cheer is always appropriate this time of year. When you think of snow and the mountains, a fond collage of imagery and sentiment harken back to a simpler time and place, when your childhood dreams and family memories were perfect. That’s quite an endorsement of this creative stop-motion “Christmas Ski Village” Joanne Balchin, but what the hell. Try to watch this without craving some egg nog and a sugar cookie, we dare ya!

The last time we were so moved was watching the Playmobile stop motion surf trip, which was certainly one for the ages.
