The Christmas When Santa’s Stamp Stuck

The Christmas when Santa’s stamp stuck, he ended up posting himself in the letterbox, instead of the book he was sending to his Aunt with a new pair of socks. He only meant to post a card, but the stamp had so much glue, that it got pasted quite hard. That Christmas none of his friends, got their Christmas cards, with an unexpected visit from Santa, stuck to the end ! Of course, he travelled first class (just like on a bus pass). When the postman came to collect the mail, Santa’s Wellington boots could just about be seen, stuck out from the letterbox, where the slot to post the letters should have been !
