    Friday, November 11, 2011

    If you’ve started the odd bit of Christmas shopping, spare a thought for those trying to get into the festive sprit in Suffolk County, New York.

    However, there is a happy ending to this story, with the nearby town Babylon stepping in to pay for the man in the red suit.
