If you’ve seen the movie “Frozen”–and if you have young children or grandchildren you’ve probably seen it many times–you’ll probably recall the scene where the younger sister is begging her older sister who is locked behind a door to come out and play by singing, “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?”
Now anytime our three-year old grandson Thomas visits our home and My Beloved or I are on the other side of a locked door (usually going to the bathroom), Thomas knocks on the door, and sings “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” in his sweet and irresistible voice.
The choice of song is a bit ironic in that we live in sunny California and it is warm enough today inside for me to have a fan blowing to stay cool. Despite that, shortly after I send this post, I’ll be building a make-believe snowman in our living room with my grandson. You can probably guess the name Thomas wants to give to it. Olaf. Of course. Poor Frosty has been replaced by this generation with a lot of help from Disney’s marketing machine.
