What could be merrier than a cute Snowman dancing and singing. I 'm one of many Snowman collectors out there and they are always a part of my Christmas decorations too. This year my cards have Snowmen on them too. So what is it that make snowmen such a big part of Christmas?
Back in the 50's Gene Autry recorded a song called Frosty the Snowman and it has become one of our most popular tunes and is played around Christmas time. Frosty has some elements of a fairy tale, with a snowman who comes to life with the addition of a magical silk hat and as Frosty begins to melt in the sun and so must hurry away, he promises to return again some day.
