Some 45 people braved the cold weather to take part in the aptly-named "Santa's Swim" to raise funds for L-Istrina, a Christmas national fundraising event in aid of the President's Community Chest Fund, according to the organisers.

The Star's Chief Photographer/Multimedia, Bernard Weil had just come off the roof of the family cottage at Pigeon Lake after blowing the gutters clean when he heard a rustling sound beside him and observed the downspout jiggling side to side. Weil dropped the ladder and yard blower that he was carrying, pulled out his iPhone and started up his favorite photo app - Hipstamatic. Waiting quietly, the little guy finally appeared, unaware that the forecast for the area called for heavy rains. We think the little guy better find a new home for the night.
