Santa is getting busy...

Not so long ago, and not so far away, Santa was getting ready for his annual trip, but there were problems everywhere! Four of the 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. Clause told Santa that her mom was coming for a visit. 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.

And then, when he began to load the sleigh one of the boards on the sleigh cracked and the toy bag bell to the ground and scattered all the toys. So, frustrated Santa went back into the house for a cup of coffee and a shot of whiskey. He then found that the elves had hit the liquor cupboard and there was nothing there to drink. In his frustration, he dropped the coffee pot and it broke into hundreds of pieces all over the kitchen floor. He went to get the broom only to discover that mice had eaten the straw it was made from – no broom.

Just then the doorbell rang. Santa cussed under his breath on his way to the door. He opened the door, and there stood a little angle with a great big Christmas tree. Smiling the little angel said, “Santa, where would you like to put this Christmas tree?”

And that, my friend is how the little angel came to top every Christmas tree.
