Any day now the East European market will take over Manchester’s Albert Square, but for now Father Christmas has the place to himself. He’s an inspiration. Crowds are flocking to take his photo.
In these days when to want something is to buy something, preparing a Christmas wish list is no easy task. But it will have to be done and soon.
