Snowflakes are one of the wonders of winter, but my delight is cut short every time I see an image of an 8-pointed "snowflake" in an advertisement or on some product. Cake bakers, craft stores, and designers should know better! Real snowflakes always have a 6-fold symmetry, because of the crystalline structure of ice.
Therefore, to bring more snowflake realism to the world, I have launched the Campaign for Real Snowflakes on Facebook. Join us!
