Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night - or afternoon - or morning - or whatever time of day it is when you read this.

Before a lot of us head out for an extended weekend I just want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas or Happy Fesitivus or whatever you are into for a holiday this time of year.  I heard a rumor that Santa's elves were going to be working extra hard over the weekend and are going to have all of Intuit's tax programs up to speed and be fully functional Christmas morning ------------------ a regular Christmas miracle!  But before I end, I have to have a little story about Santa, who as everyone knows is the reason for the season ------------ at least as far as Amazon is concerned anyway.

On Christmas Eve, a long time ago, Santa Claus was getting ready for his annual journey. But this year there were many problems.
Four of the elder elves became ill and the younger more in-experienced elves did not produce the toys as quickly, so Santa started to worry that he would not be ready in time.
Then Mrs. Claus tells him that her mother is visiting. This makes Santa Claus stressed even more so.
When he begins to gather the reindeer for his sleigh, he discovers that three of them are ready to give birth and two have jumped over the fence.
The elves begin loading the sleigh and one of the boards of the sled breaks off and the bag of toys falls to the ground dispersing the toys all around. It goes without saying that Santa was not exactly in his best state of mind and slightly triggered. Then the doorbell rings and Santa goes to the door and expects another problem.
He opens the door and there is a little angel with a big Christmas tree brought to cheer up Santa.
The angel says in a loving tone: "Merry Christmas Santa, is it not a beautiful day today? I have a big beautiful tree for you, is it not a beautiful tree, where do you want me to put it?"
And so began the tradition of the angel on top of the Christmas tree.

I heard it from several sources ——— but my hearing isn’t as good as it used to be.
