Another Christmas Story
Santa was very cross. It was Christmas Eve and NOTHING
was going right. Mrs Claus had burned all the cookies. The elves were
complaining about not getting paid for the overtime they had worked
while making the toys. The reindeer had been drinking all afternoon and
drunk. To make matters worse, they had taken the sleigh out for a spin
in the day and had crashed it into a tree.
Santa was furious. "I can't believe it! I've got
to deliver millions of presents all over the world in just a few hours
- all of my reindeer are drunk, the elves are on strike and I don't
even have a Christmas tree!
I sent that stupid little angel out HOURS ago to find
a tree and he isn't even back yet! What AM I going to do?"
Just then, the Little Angel opened the front door and
stepped in from the snowy night, dragging a Christmas tree. He says
"Yo, fat man! Where do you want me to stick the tree this year?"
And thus there came to pass the tradition of angels
atop the Christmas trees....
