Will We Have Snow This Year,

or early next year?

my Grandmother always said if there were lots of berries on holly bushes we would have snow, and this year certainly around here there are lots of red berries, which is why I have posted this snowball fight from short clip, originally captured by Louis Lumière in 1896, documents a rowdy snowball fight on the streets of Lyon, France,

thanks to Barcelona-based Joaquim Campa, who used the open-source software DeOldify to upscale and colorize the historic footage, the video of the winter pastime is incredibly clear, revealing facial features and details on garments, he has applied a similar method to clips from New York City, Jerusalem, and San Sebastian, among others, all of which you can find on Twitter, and great to watch they are too.
