When the weather outside is frightful, you really want a coat that is not only delightful but also very warm. Hey, you might look swell strutting about in that purple, velvet trench coat, but is it really going to keep out that icy wind and rain?
Maybe Santa will bring you one of the season's hottest fashion items to warm you up: a down vest or coat. Oh so stylish and yet so functional. Now, don't we all love that?

The U.S. tops the list in depression out of 14 countries in a recent World Health Organization poll. Much of this holiday malaise can be traced to a sagging economy and holiday expectations. A parents group, the Boston-based Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood, wrote letters to 24 leading toy companies and retailers to express concern about ads aimed at kids. These parents expressed dismay that they can't afford the pricey toys that toy-makers are advertising heavily to our children, and children feel diminished when they don't get pricey toys.
