The First Snowmen

Advent2Although we can never know for certain when the first snowman was made, Bob Eckstein, author of The History of the Snowman, has documented snowmen from medieval times.

He did this by researching artistic depictions in European museums, art galleries, and libraries.

The earliest documentation he found was a marginal illustration from a work titled Book of Hours from 1380, found in Koninklijke Bibliotheek, in The Hague.
