When four of Santa's elves got sick, the trainee elves did not
produce toys as fast as the regular ones, and Santa began to feel the
Pre-Christmas pressure.

Then Mrs Claus told Santa her Mother was coming to visit, which
stressed Santa even more.

When he went to harness the reindeer, he found that three of them
were about to give birth and two others had jumped the fence and were out,
Heaven knows where.

Then when he began to load the sleigh, one of the floorboards
cracked, the toy bag fell to the ground and all the toys were scattered.

Frustrated, Santa went in the house for a cup of apple cider and a
shot of rum. When he went to the cupboard, he discovered the elves had drank
all the cider and hidden the liquor. In his frustration, he accidentally
dropped the cider jug, and it broke into hundreds of little glass pieces all
over the kitchen floor. He went to get the broom and found the mice had
eaten all the straw off the end of the broom.

Just then the doorbell rang, and irritated Santa marched to the
door, yanked it open, and there stood a little angel with a great big
Christmas tree.

The angel said very cheerfully, 'Merry Christmas, Santa. Isn't this
a lovely day? I have a beautiful tree for you. Where would you like me to
stick it?'


And so began the tradition of the little angel on top of the
Christmas tree.

I stay away from the malls and stores thi time of year

I start shopping for the next year in Jan sales and pick up here an there throughput the year when I see a sale or have extra money , lol which isn't often

But I get it done early. I can't handle crowds and stuffy stores and people bumping and pushing and tempers flying.

All I had to buy was for the grandboys and I was done 3 weeks ago

I make a few things throught the year from friends, grandboys sweaters and mitt etc, knitting etc.
