What is this Snowman Burning Holiday for?

Snowman Burning Day is a festival to mark the end of winter and welcome spring.  It's a way to celebrate the change of the seasons.

By March 20th most of us are more than ready to say goodbye to winter and hello to spring. We say goodbye to the last icy snowman by helping it melt as we set it a fire and watch it burn.  Many snowmen throughout the years have consisted of little more than used paper, wood, wire and paint; with much design effort put into the look of the cool snowman; then set on fire. Some traditions just burn the clothes off a snowman built of snow as participants watch it melt away.

Once the symbol of winter is gone, we know we're ready to pack away the winter coats and gloves and say hello to our shorts, tank tops and swimsuits.
