The Christmas When Santa Got Stuck Under The Mistletoe

The Christmas when Santa got stuck under the mistletoe, all he meant to do was get kissed, but some of the loving accidentally missed. Soon, Santa was glued here and there … and kisses got stuck everywhere ! Katy, Santa’s cat, also got a sloppy kiss with a “SPLAT !”. She hoped she wouldn’t have to kiss the dog and the rat hoped that she wouldn’t have to kiss the cat ! – is Christmas in your house like that ? Soon, her whiskers were stuck to Santa’s hat ! It seemed that, this Christmas, everyone was completely stuck … not stuck for cash, or for ideas of what presents to buy, but stuck to the mistletoe, which was stuck to the light, which was stuck to the ceiling. On Christmas Eve, when Santa went off on his round the world tour, he ended up getting stuck, before he’d even left the door. In his Wellington boots, he was stuck to the floor – which was stuck to the garden which was stuck to the house. Although, he wriggled his nose rather a lot, the mistletoe was still stuck full of you know what ! Santa’s whiskers and his snowy white beard, was also rather stuck, he feared. It seemed that mistletoe berries were all the rage to wear, this year. In fact, Santa even had one of them in his ear !
