The Joy of Snow
You're sure to enjoy the cheerful Switchables Joy Snowman stained glass nightlight cover.
This is not a self-contained night light. Switchables stained glass night light covers are designed to be used with the Switchables Nightlight Fixture (sorry, we are permanently sold out -- clicking that link will take you away from our store). Switchables are "switchable" because you can easily swap any one of our covers onto the same simple fixture. You can also use your Switchables cover as a suncatcher, a Christmas ornament, or with any other kind of light source. To display your Switchables cover in a window, add the optional suction cup.
Are you curious...?
Research on snowmen isn't as rigorous as you might expect. The man who wrote the book on The History of the Snowman found the earliest depiction of this primitive installation art in a Book of Hours from 1380, so they've probably been around for at least that long. The people of Bethel, Maine, built the world's largest snowman (actually a snow woman) in 2008. Towering 122 feet and 1 inch (37.21 m), it was named in honor of Maine Senator Olympia Snowe. Bethel also held the previous world record with 1999's 113-foot, 7-inch (34.62 m) "Angus, King of the Mountain" (named for former governor Angus King). Somebody figured that it weigned over 9 million pounds (4.08 million kg). The people of Bethel don't seem to have a lot to do during the dead of winter.
