This made me laugh, Myoopi holding the carrot for a nose and using him as a "face" of sorts.

Happy holidays as well Robin.

Although I like having a warm sunny Christmas, sometimes I wish I could experience a cold snowy Christmas and build snowmen.

By the way, Myoopi was adorable.

Un-useful Japanese culture trivia time!

The reason that Japanese "snowmen" only have 2 balls, is because they don't have "legs". They're actually "Yuki(Snow) Daruma".

Daruma is of course the usual Daruma doll, which is a representation of the founder of Zen Buddhism, Bodhidharma. The story goes that he sat cross legged in meditation for so long that his legs disappeared.

Hence, Japanese snowmen don't have any "legs".

Ditto. There was one very rare day a long time ago that South Cali got snow but other than that, all we get is low temperatures and rain during this time.

I haven't had much snow for the past two years where I am though it hardly matters since I'm a introvert who hates overly cold weather regardless *crawls back into lair*

Ah, snow for Christmas, that would be nice. Take all my presents, just give me some respite from these 36 degree days.

"And I'll form the head!" has taken on a new meaning. (Yes, that is Voltron nostalgia talking.)

Back when I was a kid, if you told me that you ran out of snow making snowmen, I would just think you're crazy ))

I live in Michigan, but it doesn't look too promising for snowmen here either (have yet to see snow that doesn't disappear before, like, noon). I don't even like snow, but I'm starting to miss it!
