Sing Silent Night…but do it silently

carol singers

Welsh shopkeepers called in the police – because they felt children were singing Christmas carols too loudly. The 29 children, aged six to 11, were initially asked to stop by a shopping centre security guard, reports The Sun. Headteacher Ian Jones, who was leading the group, refused and minutes later a police support officer arrived to ask the youngsters to leave.

Mr Jones, of Sant Sior School in Llandudno, branded the incident at the town’s Victoria Centre as “ridiculous”.

…………………..

Mr. Jones was quite right. Management of the shopping center apologized and invited the kids back.

It’s raining and you just gotta smoke. What to do? Wear a silly hat.

Instead guests at the Clifton Hotel in Portland, Dorset, now get some protection from the elements if they wear the wacky headgear. Chaz said: “The hats have been very popular because of the torrential rain weve been having.”
