I learned yesterday that Santa is associated with the New Year here. So I can count on Mickey & Friends, as well as 1,000 skinny Santas until well into January. Sweeeet.
About the skinny Santas, it seems everyone in town has gone to the local drugstore and bought the 15 Euro Santa suit, and is standing on the street corner offering to pose for a picture with your kiddies. Anything to make a buck, I guess. After all the trouble I went through to find a Santa suit, now it seems like everybody has one. Whatever. (the bah humbuggedness is starting to set in... uh oh!)
