It depends on how high you dropped the glass jar into the swimming pool. If you drop the glass jar from a few feet above the swimming pool, it will not break. If you drop it from several stories above the swimming pool, the immense pressure on the glass jar that the water is exerting will cause the jar to break.

(not sure if serious, but here you are some possibilities:) a. because the globe was dropped, pulled to the ground by gravity and the structure of the glass globe was not as strong as the structure of the floor on to which it dropped. b. the snow globe may have had a high concentration of water in it (as opposed to a liquid less likely to freeze) and was exposed to extreme temperature. If you left the snow globe outside, or shipped it during the winter, the freezing liquid may have expanded to such a degree that the glass broke. c. something strong than the glass globe dropped on to the glass and broke it. d. the snow globe may have been exposed to high heat, which shattered the glass.
