When it snowed I was excited to make a snowman. I tried to put two large snowballs together, just like how I used to do it in Japan, but I was told that it has to be three snowballs in North America. The Japanese word for snowman is "yukidaruma". "Daruma
" is a round wish doll with no arms or legs. It represents the Zen monk, Bodhidharma, and snowmen in Japan are modeled after it. It is always very interesting to find out culture differences, even when it is only snowmen. How do you say a snowman in your language and what do they look like?
