Make Cut Out Snowflakes Day

Make Cut Out Snowflakes Day is celebrated on December 27th of each year.  The staff at National Whatever Day were unable to locate the origin of this Make Cut Out Snowflakes Day, however we believe it was created to keep kids busy while on their winter break from school.

The snowflake is often a traditional seasonal image/motif used around the Christmas period, especially in Europe, representing the traditional White Christmas. During this period it is quite popular in the former Soviet Union to make paper snowflakes by folding a piece of paper several times, cutting out a pattern with scissors and then unfolding it, resulting paper snowflakes are then dipped into milk and glued to windows.
