The History of The Christmas Angel

We've created this area in the hope of seeing material ranging from some well-told (or well retold) jokes to original writing with a humorous slant, or anything else that might appeal to the kind of person who enjoys playing with words more than people. That probably means someone like yourself. N.B. -- Postings preceded by ** contain some sexual or risqué content. (Makes them easier to find.)

The History of The Christmas Angel

Santa was fuming. It was Christmas Eve and everything was going haywire. Mrs. Claus had burned all the cookies. The elves were complaining about not getting paid for the overtime. The reindeer had been drinking all afternoon and were dead plastered. As if that were not enough, they had taken the sleigh out for a spin earlier in the day and had crashed it into a tree.

Santa yelled, "I can't believe it! I've got to deliver millions of presents all over the world in just a few hours, but all of my reindeer are drunk, the elves are on strike and I don't even have a Christmas tree! I sent that stupid Little Angel out hours ago to find a tree and he isn't even back yet! What am I going to do?!"

Just then, the Little Angel opened the front door and stepped in from the snowy night, dragging a Christmas tree. He said, "Yo, fat man! Where do you want me to stick the tree this year?"

This is how the tradition of angels atop the Christmas trees came to pass.
