Silly Sunday

Silly Sunday is the place to come for weekly laughs. The rules are simple, just have fun.

This is a great opportunity to get to know other bloggers and have a laugh or two in the process. Here is how it works: Laugh and Link Up!
Today will be the last Silly Sunday post. If anyone wants this meme let me know. It seems that jokes are no longer that much fun for most. I've been doing this for years and I thank Rhonda Albom for giving me this meme long ago. It's time to move on.
The Christmas Tree:

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 drunk 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 an 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 got this 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. Not a lot of people know this.

  3. Heeheehee! Poor little angel, trying so hard to be cheerful. Have a blessed and beautiful Sunday, and i'm going to keep posting Cajun jokes on Sunday, meme or no meme. As i said last week, the only reason i don't take it is that i am so busy at work i cannot promise to get around to visiting every other person who posts.

  21. Hi Sandee, all good things must come to an end and best before they run dry. Love this festive cracker and always did wonder why angels are put on Christmas trees.

    Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a fantastic 2018.
