Creepy Snowman

“It snowed last year too: I made a snowman and my brother knocked it down and I knocked my brother down and then we had tea.”
Dylan Thomas, A Child’s Christmas in Wales

Grapevine, Texas

At the Grapevine Christmas Festival they had these crude animatronic snowmen – where a moving face was projected inside a frosted glass globe when the snowmen talked. They told some sort of winter/Christmas story. The kids were fascinated. I thought it was creepy and didn’t stick around long enough to figure out what they were talking about.
