Another take on what a snowball is, could be the name for the end of fall/beginning of winter dance that happens at many high schools around the United States. I cannot speak for foreign countries, but in the United States, the dance is very popular among high schoolers.

The dance is not a formal dance, as a simple pair of flat front or pleated slacks and a dress shirt with tie, will do. A corsage is usually not necessary, however those with a high maintenance girlfriend may want to reconsider this tradition.
