Snowmen and Snow People in ASCII Text Art
The snowman is more than a Christmas tradition. We can make snowmen and snow people, snow villages even, all winter - as long as there is snow on the ground to roll up and stack. How do you decorate your snowmen? Do you keep a hat and scarf set just for your snowman, each year? Do you even have a pipe?
Snowmen are fairly easy to make in ASCII art. They can be made fancy by adding more details. It's easier to add details on a larger sized snowman, of course. Give your Frosty some buttons, a scarf, a hat, a pipe, some mittens, a shovel, a broom, a hockey stick and puck, anything you can imagine creating. Make the snowman your own personal creation!
Think about what your favourite things about winter (sports, travel, decorating...?) are then add them to your snowman. You can take it out of the box and make a mug for hot chocolate then decorate it with a snowman. Don't think you have to follow any standard pattern. As long as you can still recognize it as a snowman, or woman.
One nice thing about creating an ASCII art snowman... you don't have to go out into the cold!

I especially like to see how creative others have gotten with the design of an ASCII art Christmas tree. It can be kept simple or be quite complicated. I've yet to see one I don't like.
