A Furry Merry Christmas To One and All

Every year, 400 people gather for a very unusual occasion in central London, unusual in the sense that a large percentage of them will be trundling a rather large suitcase behind them. In said suitcase is an animal costume, but not just any animal costume, oh no. Not a mascot, not a onesie or a…
