To put it simply, snowflakes are hexagonal crystal structures of ice. But to expand on that… they’re snow much fun to make frosty memories with — sweeping your arms and legs on the ground to make snow angels, rolling into cool orbs to have snowball fights with friends, skiing down a slick slope and much more.
