There are so many COOL WORDS for snow, none of them in English, take a look:
Tuyết – Vietnamese
Schnee – German
Baraf – Somali
Hukarere – Maori
Nix – Latin
Elurra – Basque
Xuě – Chinese (traditional)
I mean, snow’s just snow, over here in the USA. We don’t have lots of superlatives or renditions of this beautiful cold substance but we do have a penchant for singing a song about bringing snow to LIFE. It gets sung a LOT around this time of year. Remember Frosty? I’m sure you’ve heard that little ditty blurping out of some tinny ol’ department store speakers or maybe you’ve heard it in a coffee show by now, as we’re on the cusp of the December month.
I have a bunch of miniature wooden photo holder parts-n-pieces snow beings. I’m calling them “beings” because they aren’t alive yet. The aliveness will be awakened between you and your craft when you build it, then and only then when you bring it to fruition will we know your snow being’s name!
The head of this thing goes on a spring and bobbles around, it’s CUTE! The fashion choices are somewhat lacking, however, so I’ll have extra gems and felt on hand so that you can really gussy up an ensemble, should you deem it necessary. Give it away or exercise self-gifting this solstice!
See you at the Craft Table,
JP Craft Captain
