I truly, truly hope this isn’t a Christmas hoax. Surely it’d have made the BBC news if it wasn’t, but no. Anyway, here’s the story, true or not, from thepoke.co.uk:

‘Bad Santa’ sends message to Harrods

UK News: A disgruntled employee, fired by Harrods from his job as the toy department’s Father Christmas, took revenge last night in spectacular style.
Gaining access to a maintenance control room, Lloyd Hudson, 35, from Ilford, Essex, was able to locate the chart and corresponding switches for Harrods’ 10,000 external lights.
Barricading himself in, Hudson disabled the correct lights until he could spell out his feelings to Harrods bosses and Christmas shoppers alike.

He was removed by security guards after an hour-long stand-off, then handed over to police. 
“He had drunk the best part of two bottles of whisky,” said a spokesperson for the iconic London store, “and it’s that kind of behaviour that got him the sack in the first place.”
Hudson has since been released on police bail. 
Knightsbridge visitors were stunned.  “Honestly, I am disgusted, ” said Irene Rider, 59, from Gary, Indiana.
“I was with my grandchildren. We had just gotten off the bus. I said ‘look everybody’ and pointed up to the lights – but you know what the lights said? They said f**k off. And that is not an appropriate message for a child.
At least not at Christmastime.”

Yeah, it’s totally fake isn’t it. But you gotta love those dreamers…
