Snapshot: 17 Photos of British Snowmen

Have you been out frolicking in the snow, laying down and wildly moving your arms and legs up, out and down (otherwise known as snow angels) or piling huge snowballs one on top of each other? No? Us either. We mean, it is cold outside. The thing is, Britain doesn't get as much snow as we do here in the U.S. and it's not promised to come every year. So, when it snows, that white fluffy wonderfulness is not wasted. We're going to take the warmer route and live vicariously through these 17 snaps of snowmen popping up in the U.K.:
