UK Weather: Weird And Wonderful Pictures Of Snowmen

With perfect seasonal timing, #snowmageddon hit the UK just in time for the weekend, which for many of us meant one thing - hats, gloves, scarves, snowball fights and the obligatory snowman.

We all know the traditional icy sculpture - carrots for noses, coal for eyes - but some of you went above and beyond your snowman-making duties. Rugby balls, beer cans, woolly hats, green hair made out of grass, even a stethoscope adorning the neck of a medical snowman!

Flick through some of your inventive snowman images below. We would love to publish pictures of your hard work from the weekend - send your snowman photos to:, or tweet us at @HuffPostUKPics
