The History of the Snowman

  • Post author:

The first snowman appears in a medieval devotional book from centuries ago! In his book The History of the Snowman, Bob Eckstein reveals that people have been packing and stacking their winter’s snows since at least 1380. In this passage, he talks about how researchers are trying to figure out where our modern-day tradition came from by looking back into historical records such as churchyard graffiti or calendar drawings which date further than any other art form found thus far – including recognizable scenes like animals interacting with humans (a popular subject).

In 1494, when young artist Michelangelo was commissioned by Piero de’ Medici to create a snowman for his ruler. Seventeen years later, the city of Brussels would use this cheerful tradition to make a point with its message!

The Miracle Of 1511 began after the six-week-long Winter of Death. The people in Belgium were starving and freezing while their ruling House lived luxuriously, Mikula even taking up residence at an estate not far away from Brussels! One hundred ten satirical creatures made out of snowmen – some seducing each other; others nakedly urinating into one another’s mouth or trousers–spoke volumes about how they felt regarding these abuses by the Government against its citizens who only wanted food to survive on. But when Spring came, it caused extensive flooding, and many lives were lost because there was no way for them.

The evolution of the snowman can be traced back to 1818 when Zurich, Switzerland, began celebrating Spring by blowing up these creatures. This practice is still alive today, and on April 3rd, a Cotton Snow Man takes part in festivities with its Christian name applied for all time!

The story of Der Schneemann has been passed down through generations. This magical being comes to life during a time when people needed hope most, and his kindly heart helps bring joy even amid the chaos with an endless supply 

of knitted carrots on hand, just waiting for someone willing to put them into action!

The Sapporo Snow Festival is a three-day celebration with decorated floats and skiing competitions in Japan. It all starts with a massive countdown from one hundred until they release over two dozen jumbo balls into their square mile park for people to play inside or outside of while you can enjoy hot cocoa brewed by chefs at each venue’s kitchen counter!
