Default Santa's having a bad day....

This one's for GP!

http://i241.photobucket.com/albums/ff275/redbird4848/santasbadday.jpg (broken link)

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 had 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 drank 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 doorbell rang, and 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 little angel on top of the Christmas tree.

Unhappy I agree

[quote=karibear;6356971] (I don't hate the holidays, it just disgusts me to see them so commercialized. I think Halloween is great for kids, and Thanksgiving, too. I do like Christmas, but I don't like seeing Halloween and Thanksgiving passed over in the mad rush to sell-sell-sell and buy-buy-buy for Christmas. Each one should have it's own celebration, not marred by so many people and stores jumping the gun for the next big holiday. I like the lights and I don't even mind people leaving them up year round as long as they aren't turned on. I just think it's too much of a good thing for them to be burning for a month or more before the actual day. If you think about it, Christmas and Valentine's Day are the two biggest holidays of the year, because those are the two biggest money-makers. )
I agree with you on all of this ! As years go by I find myself not caring for the Holiday season more and more just for these reasons. I use to love Christmas as much as the next person but now days the media is trying ( and succeeding) to direct us in a different direction. It isn't about being the first in line for the hot items or to get the best buys. WAKE UP!!!!
And FWIW, ( I don't care much for sappy movies, but I always cry over those sappy Hallmark commercials! )
