One particular Christmas season a long time ago, Santa was getting
ready for his annual trip, but there were problems everywhere. Four of
his elves got sick, and the trainee elves did not produce the toys as
fast as the regular ones so 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
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?"
Thus began the tradition of the little angel on top of the Christmas tree.

So, i have been helping Hailong pick out an engagement ring for his girlfreind... basically explaining to him some of the english terms and what not (he is from China)... and we learned an interesting fact today... The majority of diamonds are cut so they have 50-60 facies... Tiffany's diamonds are cut so they have approximately 98 faces. So Tiffany's diamonds sparkle more so because the light has more faces to reflect off of... i thought that was pretty interesting :D
