Baby it's Cold Outside

So the weather outside has me bundling up and got me to thinkin it might just be the right time to use your new Chritmas pennies to get a new warm hoodie for you or your freezing loved one. It is far more practical and animal friendly than killing a goat or rather a Tauntaun like Luke Sky Walker did and using its carcass for warmth, to get one of these charming, yes I said charming, new sweatshirts!
