Yes, yet another tradition for kids of all ages comes to an end. The new owners of Chapel Hill Mall have officially killed Archie the Talking Snowman. A 35 year Christmas tradition, now merely a memory. Oh well, I'm sure they'll rent the space to some gold-by-the-inch or overpriced embroidery kiosk. No funeral arrangements have been announced, but just how do you bury a 40 ft talking snowman???
