♥ Let’s put aside the modern meaning of “snowflake” as in The Snowflake Generation and talk a bit about traditional snowflakes. Well, first off, I LOVE snow! Like I mean, I really love snow, not just because it means skiing & ice skating but because of its sheer beauty. Mother nature truly does work her magic during winter “a blanket of snow” that covers the land is a sight I always cherish. To think all that snow are piles and piles of snowflakes always astounds me. We all know that snowflakes are formed in clouds and happens when water droplets freeze and become ice particles. Then water vapor clouds congregate on the ice particle which effect it to stretch into a basic hexagonal prism that grow branches to create a more difficult and complex shape. Afterwards the snowflakes continue to change making them totally unique from each other. Awesome, huh?
Interesting & Fun Facts about Snowflakes

Frozen wonderment of nature’s gift,
Snowflakes like handwoven delicate lace,
Shimmering, glistening floating from the skies,
Caresses the land and sprinkles upon our face
Pure sheets of iridescent sparkles,
Visible for as far and wide as the human eye can see
Snowflakes disguise familiar and humdrum into a mystical wonderland,
Take my hand, come meander through it with me
Falling, tumbling luminous like-stars,
Each frozen flakes of astounding magnificent unique beauty
On this Christmas day my heartfelt wish on each flake descending from above,
May it bestow on all world enteral love, peace and harmony.

♥ Here’s a little snowflake song my Grams sings, she told me around Christmas time the major television networks would each have a little short/ commercial (not an ad) as this one. She remembers it being on television throughout the season. Gosh, I wish they still played it.
