2011/354: Smokey, The… Snowman?

Isn’t he cute?
The snowman lifts up and you put a cone-shaped thingie* on the small piece of metal, and light it.

* I don’t know what this cone-shaped thingie is called. The German word is Räucherkerze. I guess it’s like incense??

  1. I suppose it’s incense. Doesn’t the snowman know that smoking is bad for your health? Though, I bet he smells good.

    • Maybe he’s not smoking… you can just see his breath in the cold 😉
      He does smell good, although Greg doesn’t think so.

      I don’t remember Santa and a pipe either. Are you sure you don’t mean Frosty? Him I remember with a pipe and I think it’s even in the song.

  2. yeah, I’m thinking this type of decoration isn’t socially accepted anymore 😉 Do you remember when Santa had a pipe? Everytime we read Twas the Night before xmas, I’m expecting questions, lol

    Adorable though, what’s the scent?

    • LOL I guess that means that Germany is more accepting than the US?
      Nope, I don’t remember Santa with a pipe….. probably was the American Santa 😉

      Btw., your card still hasn’t made it 😦

  3. Oh, my! Don’t let him melt! 😉

    You capture the warmth of this time of year in a simple decoration. Perfect!

  5. I’ve been waiting for another snowman and here he is… Smokey the Snowman! Love the photograph and the way the smoke show up beautifully. On my haunted hotel post… I stayed at the Emily Morgan in San Antonio a couple of years ago and didn’t find out until later that it is supposedly haunted… a former hospital. That explains one of my friends who said she couldn’t sleep because she heard a baby crying… the rest of us didn’t hear a baby crying in the night… YIKES!!!

  9. I love the way you captured this – the light is beautiful! And that snowman is pretty darn cute too. I’ll think of him in the way that you say above, with “cold breath” instead of smoke! 🙂
