The Christmas Eve Santa Almost had a Disaster.

It was Christmas Eve and Santa was having a panic attack. All the Reindeer, Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, and Blitzen and of course Rudolph came down with the Covis virus and would not be able to pull Santa’s sleigh.

Santa did not know what to do. He could not reschedule Christmas or postpone it. He was worried all the good little Boys and Girls all over the World would wake up Christmas morning and find no presents under their tree.

Just then Thunderbolt the Chief of all the Elves came to Santa and said, “Santa we know the Reindeer are sick and cannot pull your sleigh. Many Elvesvolunteered and we will pull your sleigh”.

Santa said what a great suggestion why didn’t I think of that? Now the Elves began to get harnessed to the sleigh. One by one, the Elves were harnessed to the sleigh, Acorn, Itchy, Littlestar, Midnight, Twinkletoes, Frowny, Cookie, Sweetpotatoe and Rodney the Red Nosed at the lead.

The sleigh was loaded, the Weatherman predicted snow and there was a full Moon. All the right signs for a safe trip. The sleigh took off, Santa knew he would make all his deliveries on time and all the good little Boys and Girls all around the World wake up on Christmas morning to find all their wishes under their tree.

As the sleigh flew out of sight all that was echoed throughout the valley was Ho-Ho-Ho and Merry Christmas.
