Did you build snowmen in your childhood? OK, most of who are reading this post did it. A snowman is a funny attribute of a snowy winter.
Generally speaking, there is not almost any difference between the USA and Russian snowmen.
They consist of three large snowballs of different sizes and supported with some “accessories” like a carrot or a pinecone standing in for a nose, branches for arms and a happy simple smile.
Some of the Russian snowmen have a broom and wear a bucket instead of a hat.
In the Russian language, a snowman is pronounced as “Snegovik”.
An interesting fact, Russians and Ukrainians often call a snowman a “Snejnay Baba”. It may be to translate into English as “a Snow Peasant Woman “.
However, a Snowman-Snegovik and a Snejnay Baba look the same, no difference.
By the way, the historical notes say that snowmen came from medieval times. Anyway, this post is on glass snowmen ornaments.
In many Russian fairy tales, a joyful snowman helps Ded Moroz to delivery gifts to children.
Snowmen were a popular theme for Soviet-Russian glass ornaments. Every child wanted these funny ones.
