"Live Snow" While making a snowman, we always try to give it the shape of a living being. And what if our wish came true? .. Not so long ago, overseas traders brought to the capital a batch of live snowmen! Unfortunately, they could escape from the warehouse and took a batch of Christmas decorations with them. You will have to face the fugitives and return the Christmas decorations! Snowmen have stolen not only Winter Maiden Festival capital’s decorations, but also a collection of last year's snowmen.
