The Sad Story Of The Unicode Snowman

I came across a post with that title on Hacker News. It is simply a newly-registered domain:

☁→❄→☃→☀→☺→☂→☹→✝.ws

If you read the symbols, left to right, you will see a little story about a snowman.

Happy holidays!

Avtal

P.S. Disclaimers: 1) I don't endorse the contents of that site. Just the opposite, actually. 2) Warning for noobs: Domains containing symbols are not in compliance with the IETF's IDNABIS standard, and will stop working at some point.

As posted by the guy on LSD:
"One cold night, when the temperature was just at that comfortable temperature below freezing, clouds began to form in the heavens. Before long, these clouds let forth a surplus of unique, sticky snowflakes. These snowflakes came to litter the ground. A child looked out and observed his frontyard which had been transformed into a winter wonderland. Rushing outside, he rolled the snow into 3 large orbs descending in size; thus he made the snow into the likeness of a man. The sun was shining warm as he worked. All was happy.

However, as the sun continued to come out, the falling snow quickly turned to rain. The rain came down upon the snow, and working with the sunlight, the snow quickly went away. As the snow disappeared, so too did the snowman. The snowman bore a slow death as he melted to the ground. Such sorrow was wrought, until the final death had at last approached".
