This year Hallmark is promoting their 10th in the series Dancing Snowman. But knowing the first was in 2003, things weren’t adding up. When thing don’t add up, I get obsessive. So I found this image and went through my archive and eBay to put a date to each one. It turns out they didn’t have a snowman in 2009. Instead they had a moving, musical Snoopy playing the piano. I went back to the Facebook photo album that was the precursor to this blog and found this quote.
This year they have Snoopy playing the piano which I’m not that interested in. Snoopy doesn’t play the piano, Schroeder does.
This year is the snowman with the dog and lamppost. I’ll have a video of it tomorrow. I like it more than last year’s skier. They have also reissued the original carolers from 2003. I didn’t see it in the store but you can get it online. Rose found me my last one from 2006 in an antique mall so now my collection is complete. My coffee table is now over capacity and the 2013 and 2003 snowmen are on a shelf next to the tree.
UPDATE: Thanks to all the commenters. I’m clearly missing the Canadian-only baking snowmen from 2008 but also there’s this new mystery snowman one of my friends has. It’s a mystery.
