Happy Holiday..

Postby Karlsweldt » Tue Dec 24, 2013 8:01 am

Just a snort note to wish everyone a Happy Holiday, or Merry Christmas.
There is an old fable about how the angel came to be atop a Christmas tree.. Image

...As found at: Motherboards.org /water cooler...



When four of Santa's elves got sick, and the trainee
elves did not produce the toys as fast as the regular
ones, 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
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 little 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 little angel with a
great 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 put it?"

And so began the tradition of the little angel on top of
the Christmas tree.
F@H.. to solve mankind's maladies.. in our lifetimes!
