If winter's already getting you down, you might want to resort to the latest Facebook trend and pretend the temperature can't stop you.
Frosting — not to be confused with past trends like planking, porting or milking — means dressing up in your summer gear and snapping pictures of yourself re-creating your favourite summer activities, even though the snow might be deep on the ground.
The trend began last winter in Montana, when a group of locals got fed up with snow and decided to get their summer clothes out and pretend it was a balmy June day.

They set up a Facebook fanpage, Frosters Anonymous, and snapped pics of themselves wearing shorts and bikinis doing activities usually reserved for the summer.
Photos of frosters playing golf, kayaking and even sun bathing, all with piles of snow around them, soon lit up the web — and some enthusiasts even stripped fully to show the cold couldn't keep them down.
The trend soon spread to other wintry outposts around the world, and the Facebook page now have thousands of likes, with submissions rolling in from around the States, Germany and Eastern Europe.
