    One particular Christmas season a long time ago, 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
    regular ones, so Santa was beginning to feel the pressure of being behind

    Then Mrs. Claus told Santa that her Mom was coming to visit. This stressed
    Santa even more.

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

    More stress. Then, when he began to load the sleigh, one of the boards
    cracked, and the toy bag fell to the ground and scattered the toys. So,
    frustrated, Santa went into the house for a cup of apple cider and a shot
    of rum. When he went to the cupboard, he discovered that the elves had
    hidden the liquor, and there was nothing to drink.

    In his frustration, he accidentally dropped the cider pot, and it broke
    into hundreds of pieces all over the kitchen floor. He went to get the
    broom and found that mice had eaten the straw end of the broom. Just then,
    the doorbell rang, and irritable Santa trudged to the door. He opened the
    door, and there was a cute little angel, with a big Christmas tree.

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

    Thus began the tradition of the little angel on top of the Christmas tree!
