It's that time of year again: December has sneaked up on us, Christmas is on its way and we're now definitely into winter time.

But as climate chaos threatens our future, it also reduces the possibility of a White Christmas each year. Desperate to see some snow we have to head south to Brabant Island in Antarctica, where we find this fantastic snowball.

The snowball is about 6m wide and appears to be a natural occurrence, having recently rolled off the hills to the north. That would make a great snowman...

Also to get you in the Christmas spirit, Google have announced that in conjunction with NORAD (that's the North American Aerospace Defence Command) they will be tracking Santa around the globe using Google Earth.
