A Christmas Story



I              have learned something new today .....

A long time ago, when four of Santa's elves were sick & the apprentice elves could not

produce toys as fast as the regular staff, Santa began to feel the pre-Christmas pressure.

When Father Christmas's wife, Mary, told him that her mother was coming to stay for

Christmas, he became even more stressed.

When he went to harness the reindeer, he found out that three of them were about to give

birth & two others had jumped the fence & were missing, Heaven only knows where.

Then when he began to load the sleigh, one of the floorboards cracked & one of the toy

sacks fell to the ground, toys were scattered all over the place.

Feeling frustrated, Santa went in the house for a glass of still cyder & a shot of rum.

He went to a kitchen cupboard & discovered the elves had drunk all cyder & hidden

all the sprits.

In his frustration, Santa accidentally dropped the cyder demijohn & it, breaking into

hundreds of little glass pieces, all over the kitchen floor.

He went to get a brush & shovel, Santa found the mice had eaten all the straw bristles.

Just then the doorbell rang & an irritate Santa marched to the door, yanked it open

& there stood a little angel with a dirty great big Christmas tree.

The angel said “Merry Christmas Santa. Isn't this a lovely day?” very cheerfully,

“I have a beautiful tree for you. Where would you like me to stick it?”

And thus began the tradition of the little angel on top of the Christmas tree ..…


The true meaning of Christmas?
