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
ones, so Santa was beginning to feel the pressure of being behind schedule.
Mrs. Claus told Santa that her mom was coming to visit. This stressed Santa
even more. When he went to harness the reindeer, he found that three of
them were about give birth and two had jumped the fence and were out,
heaven knows where.
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 cup of coffee and a shot of whiskey.
When he went to the cupboard, he discovered that the elves had hid the
liquor and there was nothing to drink. In his frustration, he accidentally
dropped the coffee 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 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 angel with a great big Christmas
The angel said, very cheerfully, "Merry Christmas Santa. Isn't it just a
lovely day? I have a beautiful tree for you. Isn't it just a lovely tree?
Where would you like me to stick it?"
Thus began the tradition of the little angel on top of the Christmas tree.
