Image: The Illustrated History of the Snowman, by Bob Eckstein (Author). Publisher: Globe Pequot Press (September 1, 2018)World Day of the Snowman (2011)
-- The snowman is the beloved symbol for winter. He is one of the most popular figures worldwide. World Day of the Snowman was first held in 2011, the 18th was chosen due to the form of the Snowman: 8 symbolizes the snowman and the 1 stands for his stick or broom. Moreover, January is usually cold enough to build snowmen and is therefore a perfect chance to celebrate the snowman.

Read: The Illustrated History of the Snowman
-- A thoroughly entertaining exploration, this book travels back in time to shed light on the snowman's enigmatic past -- from the present day, in which the snowman reigns as the King of Kitsch, to the Dark Ages, with the creation of the very first snowman. Eckstein's curiosity began playfully enough, but soon snowballed into a (mostly) earnest quest of chasing Frosty around the world, into museums and libraries, and seeking out the advice of leading historians and scholars. With over two hundred illustrations, The Illustrated History of the Snowman is a truly original winter classic -- smart, surprisingly enlightening, and quite simply the coolest book ever.
