Snowmen

Christmas Countdown: 8 Frosty Snowmen

Love it or hate it, the city is once again covered in holiday glitter and glamour. I've been searching all corners of Toronto for holiday exhibitionism, good or bad, and for each of the remaining 8 days until Christmas I'll be posting a different photo essay documenting the annual make-over. Today I feature snowmen.

Like with snowflakes, I had every intention of including at least one actual snowman in this series, but winter clearly hadn't given the city enough snow staying power.... until today! Great timing! I think I just might get out there and make myself a snowman! One thing though, as I was taking photos of snowmen, I kept thinking, why aren't there ever any snow-women? Seriously, that's strange isn't it? What did Frosty do for fun?
