The Snowman Test

What kind of snowman would you build?

Whenever it snows enough, I love to build a snowman (or snowwoman!). Did you ever do this when you were growing up? I lived in a place with lots of snow, so I had lots of opportunities to practice my snowman building skills. I’m still not that good though! The only thing that wasn’t so great about building snowmen as a kid is that they melted too quickly.

The most exciting part of building a snowman comes at the end when you decide how to dress your snowman. Of course, some sort of face is basically mandatory, but I like it when people add even more flair. A snowman with a scarf is super cute, and a hat is also a must. Or you can go the old fashioned route and stick to coal for eyes and buttons. And of course a corncob or carrot nose.

I so very wish I lived in a place where it snowed, as I think building snowmen would be a great hobby. It’s so fun to be out in the snow, and I think building things with snow is a great way to express yourself artistically. I’ll never be talented enough to be an ice sculptor, but a snowman I can do. Besides, I’m pretty sure you get to drink hot chocolate afterwards.

Have I got you itching to build a snowman? Luckily you can build an imaginary snowman with my latest quiz: The Snowman TestΒ No actual snow required!

    You Are Charming and Unique

    “You are attracted to the counter culture. Mainstream culture doesn’t have a lot to offer you.”

    This is basically true. Though, I tend to follow my own ideas rather than any specific culture.

    “If people want to think you’re flakey, that’s fine. You’re getting more done than they are.”

    Haha, this is the second quiz that’s called me flaky.

    “You don’t need much in life. You just want to be seen and appreciated for who you are.”

    Interesting, lately I have been trying to be more minimalistic.
    “You can be a bit too honest at times. And most people find that refreshing.”

    No they do not! Most people find it offensive. I still choose to be honest, regardless.

    Sounds like me. And calm and content partially describes me too.

    Nice! Good one πŸ™‚

    I grew up in southern California and the desert of Arizona…so I have no recollection of building a snowman/woman, lol. Although we took a couple of trips up to the SoCal mountains when I was younger, I don’t remember them (so I wouldn’t remember if snowmen/women were built). But I have lived in Boston since 2006, so I think it’s past time for me to build a snowman/woman…

      Boston is the perfect place to build a snow person πŸ™‚ I grew up making them in Colorado, but it was so sunny that they usually melted before too long. Boston winters can be tough, but you can’t beat the falls and springs (in my opinion!)

        I totally agree! Fall and Spring are amazing. Right now the Boston weather is a little confused–it’s December and it feels like Spring but all the leaves are gone from the trees, lol. Mother Nature is a little confused, lol.

        I’m definitely looking forward to some snow. We had a TON last year!
