Simple Gifts

by Sara Gran

Simple Gifts, a lovely animated PBS series, is a series of five or six stories, used to air every year on Christmas eve or day. It’s out of print now but you can find the segments online. This is the only clip about the military–there is also an animation of a bit from Virginia Woolf’s Orlando and more:

I hope you enjoy this, I hope you share it with your family and friends, and I hope you realize, as this short clip makes clear, that the only thing standing between us and paradise is our own thoughts and deeds. Happy Holidays!
