Nuns Built a Snowman During a Rare Winter Storm in the Vatican
When it only snows once every six years or so, you have to make the most of the flurries. So after a rare winter storm blanketed Rome in the white stuff, the priests and nuns of the Vatican took full advantage.
In St. Peter's Square, a snowball fight broke out between the seminarians from the Pontifical North American College and those of the English College, according to Twitter user Molly Burhans.
According to Travel + Leisure, it's unclear who won the battle. Meanwhile, local nuns built a series of snowmen nearby:
