Getting in the Spirit

To help us all "get in the spirit" of the Holidays, here are a couple of things that have crossed my path. And, one of my favorite Christmas songs.

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 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 drunk 
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 door bell rang and an 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 would you like me to 
stick it?”

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

So, it's not so traditional. But I bet it made you laugh! And, as the season can be stressful, we all need a laugh.

Love these two dogs! I am currently trying to figure out how to teach Sadie this... 

And, lastly, one of my favorite Christmas songs from one of my favorite Christmas movies. 
May your Holidays be joyful and oh so merry. Merry Christmas!
