The Christmas When Santa Forgot To Switch On Christmas

The Christmas when Santa forgot to switch on Christmas, everyone was in the dark. None of the fairy lights worked at all … there wasn’t even a spark. Although he’d marked the date alright, it wasn’t that great without any lights on Christmas night. He stumbled around looking for the switch … and fell down into a ditch ! When Mrs. Christmas came to look, she couldn’t find the turkey to pluck. She crashed into the Christmas cards and they all came unstuck ! Of course, everyone knows, that when Santa switches Christmas on, it snows. But, this year, with no electricity, Christmas was hopeless … and there was no way to cook tea ! Christmas would have been a real Christmas cracker – except that Santa didn’t know which way Christmas should have been switched, so this year, Christmas had to be ditched ! Even the stitches on the stockings became unstitched ! It turned out to be a rather unusual Christmas, that year … with Santa, on his sleigh, looking for the switch to bring Christmas cheer !
