Christmas Traditions Explained

Paint the scene.....It's christmas Eve at the North Pole. The snow is soft on the ground and the air is cold but fresh and Millions of children sleep tonight with happy dreams, waiting to see what the morning light will bring....

Santa, however, was pissed. It was Christmas Eve and NOTHING was going right.

Mrs. Claus had burned all the Christmas cookies. The Elves were bitching about not getting paid for the overtime they had worked while making toys. And the reindeer had been drinking all afternoon and were dead drunk. They had taken the sleigh out for a spin earlier in the day and crashed it into a tree, breaking off one of the runners.

Santa was beside himself with anger. "I CAN'T believe it! I've got to deliver millions of presents all over the world in just a few hours from now and all my reindeer are drunk and my Elves are on strike."

He was roaring at this stage. "I don't even have a Christmas tree! I sent that stupid Little Angel out HOURS ago to find a tree and he isn't even back yet! What am I going to do?" Just then, the Little Angel opened the front door and stepped in from the snowy night, dragging a Christmas tree. He says: "Yo, fat man! Where do you want me to stick the Christmas tree this year?"

And thus began the tradition of angels atop the Christmas tree...
