Kids make them.
Dogs make them.
and even frogs (?!) make them.
Snow angels, you say?
Well, yes, but every angel begins with a … ?
Yup, sounds just like it looks.
A sitzmark is a depression made by someone falling backward into the snow. The term stems from the German word sitzen (to sit).
I’m partial to the pretty ones left by birds, like this one:
P.S. Remember this cute pic of my Meggie making her (sitz)mark last winter?
We love walking around our property after a fresh fallen snow to see what animals have been about our property while we slept. You never know who/what sitzmark we will find!
Yep, I remember well making snow angels as a kid, then teaching my son when he was a little boy! What fun we had, oh the memories! He will be 40 soon😊
I’ve never seen a bird snow angel. Beautiful! The last snow angel I made was in Iceland last year when we were on a sightseeing journey and stopped during a white out of falling snow. Another friend and I immediately fell on all that fresh snow and made snow angels and caught snow flakes on our tongues like we used to do back in childhood. It felt so good!
How fun! Delightful! Thanks for brightening the day.
It has been so long since I have made a snow angel. Or better yet, a stizmark. I love seeing the different kinds of stizmarks that animals make, especially my dogs. They love to roll around in the snow. I can wait until I can teach my baby boy how to make snow angels and see his cute little stizmark.
Love that Kermit the frog. Snow angels are snow much fun!
