Strip lashes, gold jewelry and a festive pop of color are all it takes to elevate your look for the holiday season, snow people, as evidenced by the runaway success of what some are calling “Farah the snow Jatti” or “Frosty the Aunty.” This stunning, Brampton-based “desi snowwoman” has been tearing up the web since late last week when photos of her vibrant visage hit social media platforms.
More than 84,000 people have liked her look on Twitter alone since Friday, with thousands more showing her love on Reddit, Facebook and Instagram over the weekend.
Today, as news of her existence spreads, she has become a bona fide internet sensation—and with good reason. I mean, look at her. Have you ever seen such a pretty character made from three big balls of snow?

Snowwoman actual name, we have learned, is “Saddi Juliet,” and the story of how she came to be is even more beautiful than her pretty lashes.
“My friend Daljit [Waraich] came from India, and it was her first winter here in Brampton!” says Jassu Kingra, 19, who first posted photos of the creation to her Instagram page on Friday. “She called me and told me she wanted to build a snowman, and then she asked how to build it, and I invited her over to our house.”
With the help of her Jassu’s two younger sisters Navi, 15 and Bini, 9, the teen girls built what turned out to be a perfect, three-tiered snowman.
Jassu uploaded some photos of snow girl to Instagram and, thanks to a signal boost from one of her followers, Isha Singh, the snowgirl quickly went viral.
“We have a story behind this snowwoman, we are calling her ‘Saddi Juliet’ for a reason,” she said of the character’s name. “But that reason cannot be out yet… For that storyline to be completed, we need it to snow in Brampton!”
