If our immune system were that weak as to be affected by a few hours in cold temperature we would really be in trouble. viruses cause colds, usually the rhinovirus. The only way that freezer would give you a cold is if you were working with someone who had a cold in the freezer either at the same time or a day or two before. Wash your hands frequently and don't touch your nose, mouth or eyes.

How do you catch a snowflake?

You need something really cold. You or anything from inside your house will be too warm and the snowflake will melt as soon as it touches. If the weather outside is cold enough, you can leave something, like a spoon, outside until it cools off. Then you can use it to catch a snowflake. If the weather is too warm (the snow is not sticking to the ground, but melting), put the spoon in your freezer for a hour or so.

Why is it not vital to keep the lid of a chest freezer closed?

Any freezer needs to be kept closed as much as possible if you wish for it to remain cold. However a chest freezer will not warm up as fast as an upright freezer. This is because the cold air in the freezer is heavier than the air outside of the freezer. When you open an upright freezer the cold air "falls" out, this can't happen with a chest freezer.

No, unless it is cold enough for you to get hypothermic or if you are hovering close to other people who carry a virus you catch when you are trying to stay warm.
