Monks Celebrate Snowstorm With Massive Snowball Fight

"Peace be with you." THWAP!

THWAP! "And also with you."

These monks, said to be in Jerusalem, apparently took advantage of an unusual snowstorm last weekend to start a good-natured snowball fight, according to video posted to Facebook by a user named Héctor Gonzalo Collipal Osses.

Snow pours around the brothers as one tentatively leans down for a generous scoop and heaves it onto another.

Inspired, a second monk joins in, then another, until all six of the men are laughing, hurling snowballs at one another across the courtyard.

According to Vatican Radio, the men are Franciscans.
