According to a news article on Sky News "Monday, December 4, 2006 is set to be Britain's top day for online shopping"!

As if several thousand ducks bobbing round the ocean wasn't enough (along with a handful of them appearing in various holiday destinations), today the River Thames has been invaded with ducks for The Great London Duck Race!
