Snow globes are often associated with Christmastime. There are indeed many Christmas-themed snow globes sold in stores during the holiday season. However, one can find snow globes based upon sports, movies or any other hobby you can come up with. Finding these items in a local mall isn't incredibly difficult. Purchasing older snow globes, though, can be more of a challenge.
