Because Christmas in Bedford is scary

Instead of hanging lights, the pants-messing Mid-Cities haunted house is starting another day-after-Thanksgiving tradition: an X-mas-themed scare-fest centered around a group of demented elves who "don't care if you've been naughty or nice, they just want to get their little Santy claws on you" -- and presumably candy-cane you. And put you in the hack-in-the-box.
