    • More video. Not just kids - how about this stoat?

    • Rather viciously subverted in Elf Quest; Suntop and Ember's first sight of snow comes just before the trolls kill Lord Voll and attack the survivors.

    In How The Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents, Yolanda sees snow for the first time and thinks it is fallout from a nuclear bomb.

    Shameless self advertising: I once drew a picture titled exactly that.

    • In Ice Age 3, Manny and his wife(? are they married?)'s baby Pineapple? Plum? Pear? sees snow pretty soon after her birth. Well, it IS the ice age, after all!

    • Just one word: Kittens. And snow. And lots of laughter.

    • In The Sims 2: Seasons, any player-controlled sim upon seeing snow for the first time will get a memory about it ("Saw First Snow").

    Troper Tales: Back when I was in the Air Force, stationed near Oxford in England, a new recruit arrived on the only day there was substantial snowfall that winter. He'd lived all his life in the Deep South and never seen real snow before. He did not react well, going blue in the lips and fingertips, and refusing to come out of the barracks except to work and eat until spring.

    In The Giver Jonas is very confused upon seeing snow for the first time. Remember that he's used to total climate control.
