The Sweater by Roch Carrier

Yes, I have posted this one before, but it is so good and so off-topic, and given that the Christmas season is upon us (at least the gift-giving part of it), enjoy this story of the “wrong” present little boys love of hockey. The Sweater is a classic story of Quebecois life and beloved across Canada.

In this animated short, Roch Carrier recounts a mortifying moment of his childhood. When all his friends worshipped Maurice “Rocket” Richard and wore his number 9 Canadiens hockey jersey, he was mistakenly sent a Toronto Maple Leafs jersey from Eaton’s. Unable to convince his mother to send it back, he must face his friends wearing the colours of the opposing team. Based on the book The Hockey Sweater, This short film is an NFB classic that appeals to hockey lovers of all ages.
