    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 stick it?"

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


    What special traditions do you have and where and how did they start?

    HAHAHAHA
    Traditions: Well, we always open one gift on Christmas eve, but that's not so weird. What is weird is that my dad always opens a gift he bought himself :lol:
    It started years a go when he bought a Robo-grip because they came out too late to put on his list. The rest is history. He got me to buy a tie last year to pull a fast one on mom, so I did. But I bought slippers too. Bwahaha

    ha! Love that!
    There is only one tradition I can think of. My grandfather one year bought this ugly green shirt with some nasty print on it. If I can find it soon I'll post a photo - you have to see it to fully appreciate it. Anyway, every year on Christmas Eve he would pull it out and wear it but we hang it in the living room while opening gifts. Only on Christmas Eve. I since he passed nobody has had the nerve to wear it, but I think this is my year to start. I wonder if it will last another 30-40 years?
