Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep with the latest fashion news.

People went crazy last Christmas for a necklace on sale at the Miller Park Zoo. The Illinois zoo is excited to offer the same necklace again this holiday season. The necklaces are covered with glitter, and they may also give the wearers some clue to the real-life chores of Santa Claus. The $15 necklaces are made with a chain of beads, some glitter and genuine sterilized reindeer dung.
