Christmas Comes But Once A Year

The Bijou Blog posted another holiday treat, Celluloid Christmas Cheer, which let us know about XmasFLICK's Vintage Christmas Film & Music Channel on YouTube.  It is packed with vintage films and animated shorts.  One such cartoon is this holiday greeting by Max Fleischer from the year 1936:  Christmas Comes But Once A Year.
