Ho Ho Ho! (Repeat 240 times.)

Michael Huffman believes. He believes in the spirit of Santa Claus. He believes in the Christmas story. He believes in cozy feeling he gets when the radio slips into its Christmas rotation and the lights appear in the windows of homes he passes on his way to work at Hickory Business Furniture.

Huffman has lights, too. There’s a candle and a wreath in each window, glowing Christmas statues in the yard and flowerbeds draped in white fabric to look like snow. The mailbox says North Pole. The real sight is inside, where he spends two weeks carefully placing more than 240 stuffed, ceramic, plastic and wooden likenesses of Santa Claus in his Victorian den, his country kitchen, the bedroom with a European flair and the beach-themed hallway, where a Santa doll wears red swimming trunks and his black boots.

More at Claus collector boasts more than 240 Santas.

Gee, I hope they publish the recipe…

Nuns who own a New York City apartment house have filed a lawsuit saying a tenant couple is stinking up the building with “horrible” food smells “similar to that of vomit or rotten meat.” The lawsuit by the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart Inc. says Gloria and Michael Lim are causing “foul and harmful odors” to come from their 16th floor apartment by cooking and smoking large quantities of fish.

Court papers said one tenant thought a dead body was decomposing in the East 19th Street apartment and called the Fire Department.
