We sing a lot at my house. Its kind of a given, especially around the holidays, if you hang out around us for very long you will sung at by someone (even my almost one year old will sing unintelligible songs to you). We sing just about everything. Don’t know the lyrics, eh…no problem…
This is often the case with one of my favorite Christmas songs…Frosty the Snowman.
“Frosty the snowman, was a jolly happy soul…with some kind of a pipe and a nose and eyes made out of something else…”
Yep, this legitimately came out my mouth yesterday…sad really, but I can never remember how that song goes. It always ends up with thumpity- thump-thumps that merge into a hybrid “Peter Cottontail meets Frosty mash-up”. (Side note: I realize that the words to Peter Cottontail are actually “hippity, hoppity”, but I sing that one wrong too. The important fact here is that NEVER remembering the words to this song has NEVER stopped me from singing it.
Bottom line: I like Snowmen. I think they are pretty cool (no pun intended). There are so many possibilities with snowmen. I think the snowman’s appeal lies in the fact that its the friend that always returns with the winter snow, but you don’t feel obligated to play with them the rest of the year. I mean who ever heard of taking a snowman to the beach. You don’t have to feel guilty about not wanting to take your snowman friend out in the summertime…he’d melt. Yet, you know you can count on him to be there as soon as that snow starts falling, with no hard feelings. To honor the snowman and maybe entice the snow to start falling and maybe stick a little bit (fingers crossed, fingers crossed), I have put together a pinterest board of crafty snowman crafts. One perk to snowman crafts is that snowmen are particularly easy to make. This is because of the simplicity of their shape.
Tomorrow I will be featuring a free snowman card tutorial so be sure to come back and check it out.
Remember…think snow, think snow…
