Not long ago and far away, Santa was getting ready for his annual trip...
but there were problems everywhere. Four of his elves were 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. 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 the toys. So,
frustrated, Santa went into the house for a cup of coffee and a shot of
whiskey. When he went to the cupboard, he found the elves had hidden the
liquor and there was nothing to drink. In his frustration, he dropped the
coffee pot and it broke into hundreds of little pieces all over the he
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: "Where would you like to put this
tree Santa?" And that my friends, is how the little angel came to be on top
of the Christmas tree.
