Photo of the reborn Archie the Snowman, who was rebuilt by his original creator, Ra'ul Umana, taken in O' Neil's basement on Wednesday in Akron, Ohio. Umana, who was not only the creator but voice of the snowman, is working with volunteers to use Archie to help re-create the O' Neil's Christmas experience that featured large display windows along the front and sides of the massive store where seasonal displays were set up for viewing by the public. During the holiday season, large elaborate animated displays of elves in Santa's workshop, nutcrackers, teddy bears, trains and various toys played under Christmas trees.
