Will-O’-The-Wisp Leads Christmas Shoppers to Certain Ruin

Right now, Amsterdam residents are preparing for their traditional “Sinterklaas” celebration on December 5th as well as Christmas on the 25th. Both days feature gift giving, so this holiday season offers plenty of impetus for shopping. However, something disturbing is happening this year. A mysterious flickering light appears to be leading unwary pedestrians off the streets and into De Bijenkorf - a high-end boutique mall.

One shopper described his experience as follows “At first I was intrigued - I followed the glowing orb of greenish light out of curiosity. Then, I found myself led to one glittering sales display after another. After that, it’s a blur. When I checked my bank statement, I found I’d overdrawn almost 2,000 €.”

This will-o’-the-wisp spells even worse news for those who routinely use a credit card while shopping. Debts running into the 10’s of thousands of euros have been reported. “I’ve cut up all my cards now” laments Barb Timmerman “But it’s too late - how will I explain this to my husband?”

The Dutch actually have a name for this glowing phenomenon. They call it the Dwaallicht or “wandering light”. In legend, it leads travelers astray deep into a bog - never to return. Fortunately, most shops at the Bijenkorf don’t have a “no return” policy.

However, a number of stores have discussed assessing a restocking charge on the sudden rush of returned presents. One manager explains “It’s not our fault that these shoppers are mesmerized. Frankly, I think most of them are just tourists. They come to Amsterdam and lose all control and inhibitions - it’s disgusting.”
