As far as the Jetlag Christmas outings go, I do prefer Magic Gift of the Snowman, but still find it an improvement on A Christmas Carol. The ending is perhaps abrupt and the voice acting is a little too corny at times, however the animation is overall warm and smooth, and Tchaikovsky's music proves to be as timeless as ever. I loved all the obligatory three songs too, Seasons of Love is really one to cherish forever, the dialogue is sweet and not too simplistic and the story has all the heart and charm it should. The characters do engage at least, Marie is very likable, the Nutcracker is dashing and the Mouse King is suitably menacing.
All in all, a classic for the festive season, and one of Jetlag's better animations overall. 9/10 Bethany Cox
