How the Snowman World Day Began
Cornelius Gratz, a German collector, began this 'World Day of the Snowman. He has a passion for snowmen, and is known to have the world's largest collection. He believes that the figure of a snowman brings joy and wonderful childhood memories of fun in the snow.
History of the Snowman
Building snowmen has been a popular winter activity since probably medieval times and has become a well-known theme for Christmas and winter decorations. They are loved in children's story books and songs (such as Frosty the Snowman) and in toys and costumes. Every winter the first thing kids want to do when snow arrives is build a snowman.
|Snowman & Three Boys Art Print|
This "Snowman and Three Boys" Art Print of an original oil painting is the creation of Vicki Wade Fine Art on Etsy.
The world's largest snowman was built in 2008 in Bethel, Maine, standing 122 feet 1 inch tall.
My fellow artistic craftsmen have created replicas of snowmen in many fiber arts. A crocheted snowman is a good way to enjoy a snowman inside out of the cold. Or have fun with a snowman even if you live where it is too warm to snow.

Snowman Kitchen Towel
|Snowman Design on a Kitchen Towel|
Bring a snowman into your kitchen for a wintertime decor. The towel is 16" x 24" and made of a woven polyester / polyamide blend microfiber. The microfiber towel is super absorbent which makes it perfect for use in the kitchen or bathroom. For care, machine wash with like colors and tumble dry on low. The towel comes out of the dryer wrinkle-free and ready to use. The snowman design is embroidered on the towel to add a pop of color to any kitchen or bathroom decor.
|Snowman Door Hanger|
Snowman wears a bright red hat and a green & red scarf. Cute as his carrot nose, snowman door hanger will welcome your holiday visitors or just brighten up your door (inside or outside) on dark winter days.
Snowman doorman measures 9 inches long x 3 inches wide.
The Abominable Snowman
|Yeti, the Abominable Snowman|
And let's now forget the Abominable Snowman. A favorite from folklore and of kids who love monsters. Today known as Yeti, this mysterious bipedal creature is said to live in the mountains of Asia. But you can have your own Yeti in the form of a soft pillow pal sewn from sherpa minky fabric and filled with fiberfill. He's the creation of Melissa from Denver and is featured in her Etsy Shop 'Warm Personality'.
World Snowman Day
So, however you celebrate the World Day of the Snowman this January, by building a real snowman in your front yard, or enjoying a plush snowman or snowman décor indoors, snowmen are a fun part of winter.
