On Sunday, children across St Albans district hurried to their bedroom windows to see their home carpeted with snow, to hear snowball fights... and to smell clutches burning.

The thick layer of snow which rested on St Albans and Harpenden caused many a travel problem, as a number of roads were closed, and those that weren’t were jammed up with cars stuck in the slush.

Residents have submitted photos of the downed trees and slippery slopes blocking their streets.

However it was also time for much frivolity, and readers have been submitting their pictures of what they got up to when Christmas came to the district.

Several of the photos show birds perching in snow-capped trees, while others document the strange appearance of a number of snowmen who have arrived en masse in the area.
