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 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 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



So, frustrated, Santa went into the house for a cup of

apple 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 an 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 tree.
