definition of snow angel
a pattern made in snow which is created by someone lying down with his or her arms open and sweeping the arms and legs in a semi-circle. This movement creates a shape of an angel when the person stands up.
I was amazed and happy to see that his delight in the winter weather had led him to make a Snow Angel. I'd never seen him do this before!
