‘This the season to be jolly, and hopefully you’ll get to experience a white Christmas this year (unless you live down South, where you’ll have a very sandy Christmas), whether that means ice, snow, or a combination of both.
In order for ice to freeze, it needs to just be the right temperature. It also has to be the perfect wind chill and humidity level. But when it happens, snow can form into a dazzlingly beautiful piece of artwork created by Mother Nature herself! Whether ice forms on berries, flowers, buildings, or even perfect circles of ice bubbles, it’s always a treat to step outside and witness the magic of how snow takes shape on various objects.
It’s also pretty darn magical to see just how snow and ice crystals look under an electron microscope. No one snowflake is exactly the same nor are any of these unique, naturally-formed ice and snow formations!
Thanks to Earth Porm for many of these stunning finds and facts.

4. Frozen Bubbles Suspended Below Abraham Lake, Alberta, Canada
These bubbles form when methane gas released by decomposed vegetation at the bottom of the lake freeze.
5. Snow Roller
Snow rollers are rare, and form when large snowballs are blown by the wind into big shapes such as this, picking up materials along the way.
