I read a beaut newsletter today from Doug Otter from Queenscliff Village Newsagency – their customers love to read about the specials and the people and they loved the story of how the angel came to be on the top of the Christmas tree.

Our Annual ‘Christmas Story’…
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 called in 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 Mum was coming to visit for the holidays. 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 everywhere. So, frustrated, Santa went into the house for a cup of coffee and a shot of whisky.
When he went to the cupboard, he discovered that the elves had hid the liquor and that there was nothing to drink. In his frustration, he accidentally dropped the coffee pot and it broke into hundreds of little pieces scattering all over the kitchen floor.
He went to get the broom and found that mice had eaten the straw it was made from. Santa was at his wits end. Just then the doorbell rang and Santa cursed all the way to the door…
He opened the door and there was a very little Angel with a great big Christmas tree. The Angel said,
“Merry Christmas Santa. Isn’t it just a lovely day? I have a beautiful tree for you. Isn’t it just a lovely tree? Where would you like me to stick it?”
Thus began the tradition of the little Angel on top of the Christmas tree!
Best wishes for a safe, healthy and happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
