Snowman Snow Globe is a Firestarter!

If you have this Snowman Snow Globe from Hallmark Cards, beware! The jumbo-sized snow globe can act as a magnifying glass when exposed to sunlight and ignite nearby materials!

My parents have a vase that almost set fire to their house! They got home and found a burnt hole in the tablecloth that was smoking... lucky it didn't go up. Turns out the vase happened to be shaped so that if the sun was hitting it directly from any angle at all, it focused it into a direct beam about 15cm away from the vase.

Now they keep it in the shade.
