Some Things Just Snowball

A Comparison In Pictures

A Daruma (doll).

A group of yukidaruma . Yuki means “snow,” and “daruma” means, well, what you saw just above.

Yukidaruma is Japanese for “snowman.”

Japanese snowmen traditionally have one big snowball for the body,  rather than two, as is common in the United States.
