Beyoncé just won Christmas and there's nothing you can do about it. Before her concert in Boston over the weekend, she dropped by the local Tewksbury Wal-Mart to check out/promote her latest album "Beyonce" and snag something for Blue. She also HUGGED A BABY and paid for the first $50 of each person in the store's haul.
Finally. Something good happened at Wal-Mart this holiday season.
