    That's because the family from New York has built an 18-foot-tall snowman, nicknamed Franklin in honor of the county where the family resides.

    Pat McCormick told NBC5 that the family used a snowblower to build the massive snowman. The family started the tradition three years ago, but this year’s snowman is the biggest.

    The snowman even has its own Facebook page, Friends of Franklin.

    The family is seeking cloth swatch donations that it can turn into a scarf for Franklin.
