In some cultures snowmen are considered a symbol of the winter holiday season. They are usually built with two spheres in East Asia and with 3 spheres in North America and Europe which contain lower body, torso and head. The best time to build a snowman is usually in the next warmest afternoon directly following a snowfall. Some people like to dress their snowmen in jackets and hats. Traditionally lumps of coal are used for eyes, carrots for the nose and sticks for arms. The record for tallest snowman ever made was set in 2008 in Bethel, Maine. The snow-woman stood 37.2 m in height, and was named in honor of Olympia Snowe, a U.S. Senator representing Maine.
