Well, actually, it's a way to support your local non-profits. And it was a way for the youngsters to visit with Santa. The little ones get so excited when they see his arrival. And it's a way to get into the holiday spirit for most people but I guess not for you. Have a great holiday season - Bah Humbug!
...and a great way to see the late teens and early twenties get black out drunk and fight each other in the street, sometimes with their children present.
Ahh, the holiday's in Penn Yan!
