People have wondered from time to time the reason for an angel on the
top of the Christmas tree.
It seems that one particular Christmas Santa was rushed and harried
trying to get ready for his annual trip to deliver gifts to the
world's children. He told Mrs. Claus to wake him at 5 a.m. and to
have his breakfast ready with a lunch to take along. He then went to
his workshop and told the elves to have all the presents packed in
the sleigh and the reindeer harnessed at 5:30 a.m.
At 5:30 the following morning he awoke and jumped out of bed furious
with Mrs. Claus for not awakening him on time. His mood worsened
when he realized she had fixed neither his breakfast nor his
afternoon meal. Then he ran out to his sleigh only to find that the
elves, drunk from partying all night, had no presents packed and the
reindeer were running loose in the pasture.
About this time a little angel walked by dragging a large Christmas
tree. Santa tried to ignore her since his mood was so foul but the
angel spoke up and said, "Santa what should I do with this Christmas
And that is why there is an angel on the top of the Christmas tree.
