Ever been in that awkward situation when you’re in a room with people you barely know, and no one knows what to say? The silence seems endless… Well, why don’t you tell everyone why snow crunches? Or why escalators have brushes along the edges?

Or that reindeer’s eyes change color from gold in the summer to baby blue in the winter! Or some other, no less exciting facts!
