There's nothing better than enjoying your holiday season with a bit of snow on the ground to really get you into the holiday spirit, and these snowman innovations demonstrate just why the lovable snow creatures have remained such an important part of the holidays for decades.

These aren't your typical snowmen. Everything from snowmen that breathe fire to sad snowman commercials that will surely make you reach for a box of tissues, these snowman innovations will make you see these adorable creations in a completely new light.

While the weather might be a bit too warm for me to see a white Christmas this year, hopefully this gallery of snowman innovations will inspire those of you who are lucky enough to have a few inches of fluffy snow on the ground to get outside and start building your own front yard friend.
