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 that's how the tradition began.............


  1. Really nice, and the best of the festive season to you and yours. I noticed that by pure coincidence -- synchronicity? -- we have the same Lewis Carroll quote at the top of our blogs! Greetings.

  2. Just visited your blogs. What a fascinating life you've had and what a marvellous blog the Runagates' Club is.

  3. Thanks. I just had look at your photo galleries, your nature pics are really great. Also bookmarked your BOOKS site, another place to browse through. Out here there are two secondhand charity bookshops, I've found some surprising bargains there. Tchüss.
