Enough Christmas cheer to bring down the house
You’d think that with the Christmas-shopping rush malls would be well equipped for massive crowds. But this week a Westfield mall in Roseville, Calif., was evacuated after so many choral singers gathered to perform Handel “Hallelujah” that concern arose that the building would collapse.
Inspectors later found the building to be safe and choral singers moved their festivities to the parking lot.
Coincidentally, this is the same mall that sustained severe burns after a man set part of it on fire during a standoff with police.
