(Newser) – This is not how the Christmas story's supposed to go: Two men in Santa costumes robbed a supermarket in Berlin, reports Reuters. The men showed up with red coats and beards, and, when asked to remove their costumes, produced pistols and demanded all the cash from the register. They got the loot and fled, and weren't even jolly about it. "They didn't look like they were going to be passing out any presents when they came in," said police.
