A Christmas Story  (Not for the younger set, who probably wouldn’t get it anyway.) Thank Facebook Friend Val Lewis for this one.

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
drunk 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 an 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 angel on top of the Christmas tree.
