One particular Christmas season a long time ago, Santa was getting ready
for his annual trip, but there were problems everywhere. Four of his
elves got 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 mum 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 mug of cider and a
shot of rum.
When he went to the cupboard, he discovered that the elves had hidden
the liquor, and there was nothing to drink. In his frustration, he
accidentally dropped the cider pot, and it broke into hundreds of
little pieces all over the kitchen floor. He went to get the broom and
found that mice had eaten the straw end of the broom. Just then the
doorbell rang, and irritable Santa trudged to the door. He opened the
door, and there was a little angel with a great big Christmas tree.
The angel said, very cheerfully, "Merry Christmas, Santa. Isn't it a
lovely day? I have a beautiful tree for you. Where would you like me
to stick it?"

Thus began the tradition of the little angel on top of the Christmas

Happy New Year everbody.
