Snowman Pictures From Around The World
Turning ordinary snowflakes into creative monuments.
A common plight we often hear from people living in countries around the equator is the lack of snowfall when the month turns December, and the earth tilts away from the sun. Indeed, the closest thing we brown-skinned, sun-dried, equatorians get that remotely resembles snow is the drop in temperature and the heavy rains that come around this time of year. An especially disappointing fact of life without snow is the inability to make snowmen. Although we still exercise our creativity by building snowmen made out of plastic and hanging them on door frames and store windows, it doesn’t quite compare to the real thing. So here’s a montage of snowmen pictures from around the world, a testament to man’s creativity, and as an ode to those who may never get to experience the real thing. Hopefully, I may be able to see and make one of these marvels for myself someday.
