A Christmas story

Here’s a little story that goes to show even Santa has a bad day. We don’t know the author, we just like a good story.

A Christmas Story for people having a bad day:

When four of Santa’s elves got sick, the trainee elves did not produce toys as
fast as the regular ones, and Santa began to feel the pre-Christmas pressure.

Then Mrs Claus told Santa her Mother was coming to visit, which stressed Santa
even more.

When he went to harness the reindeer, he found that three of them were about to
give birth and two others had jumped the fence and were out, Heaven knows where.

Then when he began to load the sleigh, one of the floorboards cracked, the toy
bag fell to the ground and all the toys were scattered.

Frustrated, Santa went in the house for a cup of apple cider and a shot of rum.
When he went to the cupboard, he discovered the elves had drank all the cider and
hidden the liquor. In his frustration, he accidentally dropped the cider jug, and
it broke into hundreds of little glass pieces all over the kitchen floor. He went
to get the broom and found the mice had eaten all the straw off the end of the broom.

Just then the doorbell rang, and irritated Santa marched to the door, yanked it open,
and there stood a little angel with a great big Christmas tree.
The angel said very cheerfully, ‘Merry Christmas, Santa. Isn’t this a lovely day? I
have a beautiful tree for you. Where would you like me to stick it?’

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

Happy Christmas Eve Eve. Comments are always welcome.

    Merry Christmas Cruiser. With all the snow, I’m betting that there is a snow angel that looks like you in your front yard.

    anonymous,
    Merry Christmas to you also. Actually the snow angels are in the back yard. The wife felt if I got carried away in the front yard somebody would come take me to a rubber room.

    LOL funny. Santa’s day sounds like some of mine! I would not recommend making snow angels in my yard. I have two dogs and to them the yard is just one large toilet! ;-)

    scoundrel,
    I’ve had days like that myself. I feel pretty safe in my own yard, but we do have stray cats running around.
