Santa’s Bad Day – The Birth of a Tradition

Filed under: Christmas,Humour — aproposofnothing @ 9:37 am

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 got 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 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?”

Thus began the tradition of the little angel on top of the Christmas tree.

A Christmas Story

There was a man who worked for the Post Office whose job it was to process all the mail that had illegible addresses.

One day, a letter came addressed in a shaky handwriting to God with no actual address. He thought he should open it to see what it was about.

The letter read:

The Spirit of Christmas – NSFW Language

Filed under: Christmas,Entertainment,Fun Stuff — aproposofnothing @ 8:46 am

This is the original South Park video. It came out around 1995. It wasn’t on TV until 1997. When I saw it, there was no youtube and the internet was in it’s infancy. I watched it on VHS with a bunch of friends.  That was how it was passed around back then, copy the video tape and pass it to your buddy,

David Bowie and Bing Crosby – Little Drummer Boy

Filed under: Christmas,Music — aproposofnothing @ 8:45 am

This is one of my favorite Christmas songs. The story goes that Bowie did not like Little Drummer boy and the writers wrote Peace on Earth as a replacement. When the stars met that morning, they decided on a medley and rehearsed for only an hour. It turned out to be a classic. Bing died a month later.  More here.
