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 regular ones so
Santa was beginning to feel the pressure of being behind schedule. 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 coffee and a shot of whiskey.

When he went to the cupboard, he found the elves had hid the liquor and
there was nothing to drink. In his frustration, he dropped the coffee pot
and it broke into hundreds of little pieces all over the kitchen floor.

He went to get the broom and found that mice had eaten the straw it was
made from.

Just then the doorbell rang and Santa cussed on his way to the door. He
opened the door and there was a little angel with a great big Christmas

The angel said: "Where would you like to put this tree Santa?"

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