(CBS) Tale of holiday meals versus not-so happy meals. Starting Monday, McDonald’s kicks off 11 days of pairing menu items with holiday characters. Like hotcakes featuring buddy the elf, and a McFlurry paired with frosty the snowman. Meanwhile some of the chain’s franchisees have hinted at raising happy meal prices when a corporate subsidy ends. The potential 20-cent or more increase could kick-in as soon as January.
