Advent for December 8th!
As requested, this is my post to tell you all the things you can get up to to make the most out of this winter. To learn more, check under the cut!
Don’t forget to check out the Christmas tree!
The above images show you the correct dimensions to create all four snow-people.
In order from left to right:
Snowbaby: To make the snowbaby you have to push two very small snowballs together (if they’re too large you’ll create the snowmama!). The snowbaby will only give you a gift when you have made the other 3 snow-people, perfectly. He will reward you with one of four items, click here to see them.
Snowman: The snowman is pretty much the same as in the previous series - you roll two snowballs together, and make a snowman. However he has to be perfect in order to reward you. If you make him perfectly, he will complement you and send you a letter the next day with an item from the Snowman Series. If you make him incorrectly you’ll simply get nothing.
Snowmama: To make snowmama, you must roll a small/medium snowball onto a medium sized snowball (the smaller third snowball on the top will form when the two are pushed together). The snowmama will ask you to give her snowflakes. If you make her perfectly, she will only ask for 3 snowflakes, if you make her imprefectly she will instead ask for 5. Snowflakes will randomly fall from the sky during the winter months, which can be caught with your net. When you give the snowmama snowflakes she will reward you with a piece of the Ice Series. You can give her as as many snowflakes as you want per day.
Snowpapa: To make snowpapa, two large snowballs are needed to be pushed together. The snowpapa will ask to play bingo with you. He will give you a bingo card, and each day when you talk to him, he will roll his eyes and they will land on a number. If you have the number on your card you can check it off your card. If you don’t, it’s too bad. You can make multiple snowpapa’s, or visit other peoples towns and talk to their snowpapa’s to get more than one number per day. When you get bingo (5 in a row) he will reward you with a piece of the Ski Series.
Here’s an awesome little piece of history:
Archaeologists in the Burnt City have discovered what appears to be an ancient prosthetic eye. What makes this discovery exceptionally awesome is the striking description of how the owner and her false eye would have appeared while she was still alive and blinking:
[The eye] has a hemispherical form and a diameter of just over 2.5 cm (1 inch). It consists of very light material, probably bitumen paste. The surface of the artificial eye is covered with a thin layer of gold, engraved with a central circle (representing the iris) and gold lines patterned like sun rays. The female remains found with the artificial eye was 1.82 m tall (6 feet), much taller than ordinary women of her time. On both sides of the eye are drilled tiny holes, through which a golden thread could hold the eyeball in place. Since microscopic research has shown that the eye socket showed clear imprints of the golden thread, the eyeball must have been worn during her lifetime. The woman’s skeleton has been dated to between 2900 and 2800 BCE.
So she was an extraordinarily tall woman walking around wearing an engraved golden eye patterned with rays like a tiny sun. What an awesome sight that must have been.
SOMEONE DRAW HER PLEASE

EVERYTHING IS WONDERFUL AND NOTHING HURTS!
I just found this gem on facebook and it is glorious
Basic House by Martin Azua is a temporary house that can be folded up to fit in your pocket. Created from a metalized polyester material, when unfolded it self inflates with body heat or from the heat of the sun to provide an instant shelter. Once inside the shelter, the material reflects your body heat to keep the user warm. If reversed the material will reflect the sun to keep a cool interior.
