When you see a young lady in winter with earrings or a snowflake pendant, what would your first thought be? Is there a symbol behind the snowflake or is it just another cool new thing? If you analyze it a little more deeply, you will be surprised that even an innocent-looking snowflake has not escaped the practice of stamping symbols of the man.
For people who live in countries where it snows, the first sign of the arrival of winter is usually the fall of the first snowflakes. There is really nothing like seeing snowflakes spinning from the sky and silently falling to the ground, mysteriously covering the earth with a white blanket. It is a pleasant sensation to have a snowflake falling on the palm of your outstretched hand or even on the tip of your tongue, as many have tried. The man, observing the snowflakes, came up with many meanings and embedded many symbols behind the ice crystals in the sky.
An obvious association based on the whiteness of the snow and its fall directly from the sky without touching anything before reaching the ground is, of course, immaculation and purity. This sense of purity can be felt just by looking at a land that was once familiar and is now covered in snow. The snowflake also symbolizes individuality, as a very striking fact about snowflakes is that no two snowflakes are exactly identical. This is because the water molecules that make up the snowflake grow at different rates and patterns depending on the temperature and humidity as they descend from the ground. Many attempts were made to find two identical snowflakes by taking thousands of photographs of the snowflakes.
Another thing that snowflakes represent is perfection, as they have perfect geometric shapes. Snowflakes have a hexagonal symmetry with six roughly equal arms. Snowflakes also represent serenity and tranquility. Think how peaceful it is to look out the window and watch the snowflakes fall silently. It goes very well with the peace that the season brings. And speaking of the season, snowflakes also symbolize the most popular image of the season – Christmas. This is evident by the silver and white snowflakes in the shop windows, the wrapping papers, and the holiday cards that can be seen around Christmas time.
This time, when you see a snowflake falling from the sky or hanging from a beautiful girl’s ear, take another look. It may still contain meanings that you have never seen before.
