You’d think that we, as an American culture accustomed to claymation and animation, might be a tad tuckered out from singing and talking snowmen. Think Sam the Snowman from Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman, every smiling and happy snow person you’ve seen on Christmas mugs, place mats, and sweaters. You’ve seen one singing, talking, smiling snowman, you’ve seen them all, right? Apparently not!
Olaf, the little optimistic snowman from Frozen, is a snowman that I haven’t seen the likes of before. I like Sam, I like Frosty, but I adore Olaf. Olaf may be small, but he does possess some big personality traits – big positive outlook, big loving heart (he does like warm hugs, you know), big singing voice (see below sing-along). In fact, we could all probably learn a few things from Olaf…like some people are worth melting for. D’aw!
Sam, Frosty, and our other snowman friends possess some of these – as well as other – traits too and if given the opportunity, I wouldn’t mind chilling with them (baha, pun totally intended)! But what makes Olaf different? I wouldn’t mind meeting the others. But I want to be Olaf’s best friend.
So sing along, enjoy, and take a little bit of summer into your Monday.
