Stealth Pun: Nicholas is stabbed by a man dressed as Santa

...I don't get it. Something to do with slay/sleigh? But he's not "slain", so that doesn't really work.

Yeah, I think it's the slay/sleigh pun.

The name "Santa Claus" comes from Saint Nicholas.

Erm, I live in the North of England, the home of small British towns. Firstly, a small town cannot enter a Village of The Year contest - the clue's in the title. Secondly, I have been to pretty much every small town around here, none have Miniature Villages. The town nearest me has won Britain in Bloom (the mother of town of the year contests) years in a row for decades. We had the crazy doctor, too. He was called Harold Shipman. So the place can be far from perfect. All those posher towns in the midlands have re-vamped houses and mini villages - because they have no natural beauty like Yorkshire (and, for reasons, Lancashire). It rains too much up North, anyway. That's bad for a mini village, if you're pondering the relevance.

Jus' sayin', that town down the road wins literally all the time.
