** The same symbolism is made brutally real shortly after, when Yuuichi finally remembers what happened to Ayu years ago: she fell off a tree and was left comatose: unable to take any more, Yuuichi runs out into a snowstorm calling for Ayu; he runs past the place where they used to play without recognizing it because it's covered in snow. With the snow now falling furiously all around him (just as the deaths seem to be), he lays down and waits to die. The upbeat [[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x3olm7_kanon-ed-2_shortfilms ending theme]] about someone trying to find their way home seems to contradict the trope, showing Ayu happily running through the snow - until you find out where she's been all along.

** The more accurate explanation would be that when it snowed, armies couldn't ''eat''. They'd happily march through snow if there were food at the other end.
