The Snow-men are a people in the North Pole, the only people who live close to Father Christmas. His gardener, the Snow Man, is the eldest of them. They aren't snowmen made of snow of course, as Father Christmas clarifies in one letter; however in another letter he says that the Snow Man broke himself and he used what was left of him to draw a white picture.

Their children, the Snow-boys often help Father Christmas, as one time when they battled the Goblins. One time the North Polar Bear was too lazy packing the presents and he called the Snow-boys for help to the cellars (although they aren't allowed there) and started playing, causing his fur to be burned by the crackers.
