Zima Claus's Story
Always found in his bejeweled white gown, Zima Claus is hard to miss when he arrives in town. He appears each year with the first winter storm, and departs after the last spring snowman is born. This wise sage is a snow lover and historian, renown for his knowledge of every snow creature that has ever been. When Zima first started to research the art of snow he discovered, that the winter pastime of snow sculpture, has a common theme that is indigenous to all flake filled cultures, making it folk art that is like no other. There are many tales to this long snowflake filled history, and since each spring all snow sculptures do melt to memory, within each chapter there is both some heresay and mystery. About when Columbus declared the world round, Zima most important revelation was uniformly found. Each piece made in this form of art, lives on for a lifetime since they are works of heart.
