A Seasonal Lighter Note


A Seasonal Lighter Note

In the tradition of the Lighter Note established by "JimV7" a while back, I offer you a seasonal note which came my way earlier today:

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 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 cuppa 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 teapot and it broke into hundreds of little pieces all over the the 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 Fairy with a great big Christmas tree. The Fairy said: "Where would you like to put this tree, Santa?"

And that, my friends, is how the little Fairy came to be on top of the Christmas tree.
