We know snowmen as the fluffy, white, manmade creatures that come-to-life-when-we-put-a-magic-hat-on-them type. However they originated from the medieval times which were document in the Netherlands National Library (Or Kloninklijike Bibliotheek if you prefer a simpler name) in 1380 in the Book of Hours. Some of the most famous Christmas Characters are those like Frosty the Snowman (1950), Jack Frost (1996/98) and even Olaf the snowman from Disney’s Frozen (2013).
