Santa began to feel the Pre-Christmas pressure.when four of Santa's elves got sick and the trainee elves did not produce toys as fast as the regular ones, andStressing Santa even more was Mrs Claus announcement her Mother was coming to visit. so he when he went to harness the reindeer to leave but he found that three of them were about to give birth and two others had jumped the fence and were out, Heaven knows where.
Still determined he began to load the sleigh, but then one of the floorboards cracked,and 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. There he discovered the elves had drunk 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 was then even more miffed when getting the broom to find the mice had eaten all the straw off the end.
Just then the doorbell rang, and an 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 thus began the tradition of the little angel on top of the Christmas tree.
Not very many people know that..
