Snow falls in Sardicktown. (TV: A Christmas Carol)

On Christmas Eve 1892, it was snowing in London although there were no clouds. (WC: Vastra Investigates) The Great Intelligence used animated snowmen to try to take over the Earth, which could form by themselves, due to them being made up of low-level telepathic snow. This meant that if someone caught in the telepathic field was thinking about the snowmen, then more would have been formed. If that persons thought about them melting, they melted. In the early hours of Christmas Day, the Intelligence was overpowered by the tears of an entire family crying for the loss of Clara Oswald, who had just been invited to be a companion of the Doctor's before she fell to her death. The snow that had been falling was turned into salty rain, the tears of a certain family. (TV: The Snowmen)
