Freddy Takes His Skiing Seriously

What snowman wouldn’t love skiing?  It’s such a natural fit that of course we had to get an entry for it in the Snowtop Lodge ornament series from Hallmark.  Freddy F. Freestyle fills the bill with style.

Freddy is ready to hit the slopes.  He’s holding his skis with his left arm.  In an effort to fight off the cold, he’s got a red scarf around his neck, and he’s wearing a green vest.  And he has his ski goggles on his forehead so he can lower them into place just as soon as the sun’s glare hits him.  He’s excited for the day to come since he is smiling.

Or maybe he’s thinking about the day that’s been.  Either way, he is not actually skiing.  However, the snowpeople in this series all feature a scene painted on them, and Freddy’s shows some people who are currently enjoying the slopes, most on skis but one snowboarding.  There appears to be snow coming down right now to make the skiing even better.  Behind the skiers you can see some trees and more mountains.

Like the rest of the series, Freddie has a nice flat base, so you could set this collection out to enjoy together.  They are porcelain, so you’d want to make sure they were in a place they wouldn’t be bumped if you did that.  You’ll find the six in a Christmas tree series marker on the bottom of the ornament.

Or you can hang Freddy on your tree.  If you want to do that, you’ll find the loop on top of his head.  He does tip forward a little, but it’s not too bad, so you can easily hide it with branches on your tree.

Even though I’m not a skier, it is easy to appreciate Freddy F. Freestyle.  The work and detail in this ornament make it another winner for the Snowtop Lodge series.
