Be Careful What You Ask Santa
One particular Christmas season a long time ago,
Santa was getting ready for his annual trip ... but there were
Four of his elves got sick, and the trainee
elves did not produce the toys as fast as the regular ones so
Santa was beginning to feel the pressure of being behind schedule.
Then Mrs. Claus told Santa that her mom was
coming to visit and this stressed Santa even more.
When he went to harness the reindeer, he found
that three of them were about to give birth and two had jumped the
fence and were out, heaven knows where. More stress.
Then when he began to load the sleigh one of the
boards cracked and the toy bag fell to the ground and scattered
So, frustrated, Santa went into the house for a
cup of coffee and a shot of whiskey. When he went to the cupboard,
he discovered that the elves had guzzled all of the liquor and
there was nothing left to drink.
In his frustration, he accidentally dropped the
coffee pot and it broke into hundreds of tiny little pieces all
over the kitchen floor. He went to get the broom and found that
mice had eaten the straw it was made from.
Just then the doorbell rang and Santa cussed on
his way to the door. He opened the door and there was a little
angel with a great big Christmas tree.
The angel said, very cheerfully, "Merry Christmas Santa.
Isn't it just a lovely day? I have a beautiful tree for you.
Isn't it just a lovely tree? Where would you like me to stick
Thus began the tradition of the little angel on
top of the Christmas tree!
