    I find it extremely sad that Christmas has now gone high tech. When I was a child (goodness, showing my age now), I actually do remember roasting chestnuts on my Nan's coal fire. On Christmas morning after the excitement of opening presents, I found myself playing with the cardboard boxes, making dens and such like.

    Is it just that childhood Christmas are always better, or do we get disillusioned as we get older?

    No your right...

    my daughter asked me if Nintendo Wii's Were made in santa's workshop,, was a difficult one to answer. It's far too commercial these days.

    Christmas will never be the same. I remember the excitement when I was younger, and I mean even if I only recieved one of the giant pencils (they were awesome) it was amazing. I used to wake up so early and now all I can think of is sleeping.

    Christmas is the only day you can eat without having to watch how much you're taking in, thats the best thing about it!

    Christmas Angel

    Christmas Story for people having a bad day....

    When four of Santa's elves got sick, and the trainee elves did not produce the toys as fast as the regular ones, 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?"

    And so began the tradition of the little angel on top of the Christmas tree.
