Wink A Christmas Story ???

A Christmas Story for people having a bad day:

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 do you want me to stick
it?'

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