Mr Monkey scampered across Albert Square to get to the Town Hall, only slightly hampered by the crowds of people visiting the Christmas Market. He was a little worried that he might be late, and the tower seemed to get taller the closer he got to it. Mr Monkey paused for a moment to admire the giant Santa, which has been the centre piece of Mancunian Christmas decorations since 2007. It's 8 metres high, and Mr Monkey decided against stopping to count all its 100,000 lights.
