Merry Christmas. Ho-ho-ho

Ananova – Christmas shoppers beat up Santa — The good old Christmas spirit.

A department store Santa on his way home for the night was beaten up by stressed-out Christmas shoppers in Germany.Stefan Stettler, 31, from Wiesbaden, was still in character and chatting to other passengers while waiting for his train home. Police say two men, allegedly stressed after a full day’s Christmas shopping, lost their patience when asked to “tell Santa what they want for Christmas”.

The men took Stettler’s sack of presents and beat him over the head with it, breaking his fingers as he tried to protect himself.

    #3… love a good pun this time of year.

    However, like a good third of the posts here on DU, it’s probably exagerrated or bogus, probably from the NY Post/Page 6 of Germany.
