Holiday humbug

Dear readers,

Yes … it is that time of the year again, where enterprising businessmen take advantage of unsuspecting holiday makers with silly trinkets and bogus sales.

It is sad how commercialized Christmas has become, with the whole Santa Clause gimmick. Well, I know for certain that he is just a fat guy in a suit. Just so you know, Christmas is about Jesus Christ and Him alone. Anyway, I was going through the internet and found this article about the origin of “the angel” on top of the christmas tree that I thought would make quite an interesting convesation during parties, aside from the weather of course. Enjoy!


<The Angel

Not long ago and far away, 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 sick elves. Santa was begiining to feel the pressure of being behind schedule.
Then Mrs. Clause told Santa that her mum was going to come and visit. This stressed santa even more.


When he went to harness the reindeer, he found that that three of them were about to give birth and two had jumped the fence and were out, heaven knows where. More Stress.
Then he began to load his sleigh, when one of the boards cracked and the toy bag fell to the floor and scattered the toys.


Totally frustrated, Santa went into the house for a cup of tea and a shot of sherry. When he went to the cupboard, he found the elves had drank all his liquor and there was nothing to drink. In his frustration, he dropped his tea pot and it shattered into a million pieces and all over the kitchen floor. He got his broom to sweep all the bits up only to find that the mice had eaten the straw off the end of the broom.


Just then the door bell rang and Santa cussed on his way to the door. He opened the door to see a little angel with a great big Christmas tree. The angel said: “Where would you like to put this tree fat man?”


And that my friends, is how the little angel came to be on top of the Christmas tree.
