For those of us who live in Northern colder climates, the connection of snowmen at Christmas seems obvious – we often have snow at Christmas. The making of snowmen can be traced back to Medieval times. But what can we think about when we see a snowman? There is more to him than the Song about coming to life one day! I found the following post and don’t think I could share it any better.
The Meaning of the Snowman
The white snow represents God’s forgiveness of our sins.
The circular snowballs show the everlasting life God promises us.
The carrot nose shows us that God has given us the Earth and all living things.
The black coal mouth reminds us to give God praise.
The scarf keeps us warm just as God’s love does.
The top hat reminds us to honor God above all things.
The twig arms are open to hold us the way God does whenever we need Him.
With Kids: Hang the 19th tag with a snowman. Print a coloring sheet of a snowman and practice saying the meaning of the different parts as you color it.
With Teens: Talk about the TOP HAT – In what part of your lives do you need to honor God more than you do now? How can you do that this Christmas and New Year?
