Travish: Is Frosty the Snowman non-fiction, or is it just based on a true story?
[Christmas Libarian Specialist 08:52:34]: Librarian ‘(Censored)’ has joined the session.
[CLS 08:53:44]: Hmmmm … I’ll have to research that one. What’s the version of the Frosty story you’re asking about?
[CLS 08:54:09]: The classic Rankin-Bass?
[TRAVISH 08:54:16]: the one in the song. my favorite version is the one that says he’ll be back on Christmas Day
[CLS 08:54:19]: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0064349/
[CLS 08:55:57]: OK. Let’s turn to the song – perhaps there are clues there …
[CLS 08:56:44]: “Frosty the snowman is a fairytale they say
He was made of snow but the children
know how he came to life one day”
[TRAVISH 08:57:44]: if it is just based on a true story, then some of that may just be made up. Example: instead of children it could have been adults, and instead of a silk hat it could have been a felt hat
[CLS 08:57:58]: Based on this, it would appear that the majority opinion is against Frosty having ever come to life – one day, or for any duration of time.
[TRAVISH 08:58:48]: i’m pretty sure it was AT LEAST based on a true story though, even if it is not a work of complete non-fiction Continue reading The Truth About Frosty the Snowman
