Continuing the merriment this morning is a festive edition of Five’s award-winning animation for preschoolers. Peppa Pig charts the various adventures of a lovable, cheeky little porker who ives with her brother George, Mummy Pig and Daddy Pig. With her favourite things including playing games, dressing up and jumping in puddles, Peppa’s adventures always end happily with loud snorts of laughter.
This year’s festive edition, ‘Peppa’s Christmas’, finds Peppa and her family busily preparing for the big day on Christmas Eve –Peppa and George post their letters to Father Christmas, then the whole family sets off to buy a Christmas tree from Miss Rabbit’s tree shop. Daddy Pig chooses a tree that is much too big to fit in the family’s little car, so he has to carry the tree all the way home!
Daddy eventually manages to get the tree into the house so that Peppa and George can begin decorating it. Once the tree is finished, it looks very pretty –especially when the fairy lights are turned on. Peppa sings a little festive song and then it is time for Peppa and George go to bed. Peppa, however, has other plans and decides to stay awake all night to see Father Christmas…
