Not long ago and far far away, 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 sick elves.
Santa was beginning to feel the pressure of being behind schedule.
Then Mrs. Claus told Santa that her mum was going to come and 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 he began to load his sleigh, when one of the boards cracked and the toy bag fell to the floor and scattered the toys all around.
Totally frustrated, Santa went into the house for a cup of tea and a shot of sherry. When he went to the cupboard, he found the elves had drunk all his booze and there was nothing to drink. In his frustration, he dropped his teapot and it shattered into a million pieces and all over the kitchen floor. He got his broom to sweep all the bits up only to find that the mice had eaten the straw off the end of the broom. Just then the doorbell rang and Santa cursed on his way to the door.
He opened the door to see a little angel with a great big Christmas tree. The angel said: "Isn't it a lovely day today Santa? I brought you a lovely Xmas tree. Where shall I stick it?" And that, my friends, is how the little angel came to be on top of the Christmas tree.
