Trivia

  • "Special" means either different from the rest or better than the rest. "Snowflake" is in keeping with the season, but is also a traditional metaphor for either uniqueness or fragility. Note: clinically exceptional emotional fragility is a serious consequence of developmental delay, requiring accommodation for success in education, and should not be ridiculed.
    • Traditionally, a "special snowflake" was intended as a supportive compliment to someone perceived as unusually different from others.
    • Recently (c. 2016), "special snowflake" is a criticism of a person who is prone to taking offence from almost anything, or who is too emotionally fragile to cope with views that challenge their own.
  • In the description of this Golden Snowflake medal, Golden Snow refers to biologically contaminated snow.
