Christmas Stories


Santa Got Stuck in the Chimney

It was Christmas Eve. The children had hung their stockings by the fireplace and were all snug in their beds.

Sometime during the night, they were visited by a big, jolly, old man dressed in red. You got it, it was Santa Claus!

Santa and his bright red toy bag came down the chimney. This was his last stop of the night. First, he filled each stocking with special treats. Then, for each child, he left some gifts.

“A new bike for Suzie,” said Santa, pulling a beautiful pink bicycle out of his bag. “And, a train set for Billy.”

By the time Santa was finished his work, he was a little hungry. He spotted a glass of milk and a plate of goodies, sitting on the kitchen table.

“I’ll just take one,” said Santa, reaching for a piece of chocolate cake. “If I eat too much, I might get stuck in the chimney on my way out.”

The cake was so gooey and so good that Santa just had to have another slice. Soon, the plate was empty.

“Oh my!” said Santa, realizing what he had done. “I’m so full now!”

Santa got up from the chair. As he did, he heard it snap in two.

“Oh my!” said Santa again. “I’ve broken the chair!”

Santa gathered up his bag and went over to the chimney. With a twinkle of his eyes and a twitch of his nose, up the chimney he rose. However, he was only able to get halfway up the chimney before he got stuck. He tried to go further, but the further he went, the more he got stuck.

Oh no!” said Santa. “I’m stuck!”

No matter what Santa did, he could not get out. He dangled in mid-air with his big black boots hanging over the fireplace.

“I’m glad there is no fire on right now,” said Santa, after a few hours had gone by. “My feet would get pretty hot!”

Morning soon came. Suzie and Billy were quite anxious to go downstairs and see what Santa had brought them. They both went into their parents bedroom.

“Merry Christmas!” they shouted.

“Merry Christmas, children!” Mom and Dad said.

Within a few minutes, the whole family was downstairs. Suzie spotted the empty plate.

“Santa Claus was here!” she exclaimed. “And, he ate all the goodies.”

Billy noticed the broken chair.

“Yeah,” he said. “He ate so much that he broke the chair.”

Dad was by the fireplace. He had just placed some kindling into it and was about to strike a match, when he just happened to look up. He saw a pair of big, black rubber boots hanging down.

“That’s nothing children!” Dad said, tugging on one of the boots with all his might. “Santa is still here!”

The children rushed over to the fireplace. They helped Dad pull Santa out of the chimney. They tugged and tugged and tugged. Finally, down came Santa, with a crash.

“Ho! Ho! Ho!” he rang. “Merry Christmas!”

He was gone in a flash, this time, out the front door.

“What was all the commotion about?” Mom asked, coming out of the kitchen.

“Oh, it was just Santa Claus,” laughed Billy. “He was so fat from eating all your baked goods that he not only broke the chair that he was sitting on, but he also got stuck in the chimney!”

The whole family laughed.

A heavy thump, thump, thump was heard on the roof of their house and then a jingle, jingle, jingle and finally, a “Ho! Ho! Ho! Merry Christmas!”

Christopher Columbus was a hero to some and a villain to others. Hewas a brave explorer, but he also enslaved, murdered and stole fromnative people across the Americas. He first met the Arawak natives inthe Bahamas in 1492. They generously traded everything they owned.Columbus saw this as a weakness. He wrote in his journal, “Theybrought us parrots and balls of cotton and spears and many otherthings. They do not bear arms, and do not know them. They wouldmake fine servants.”

Eleven years later, Christopher Columbus was still taking advantageof the Arawak’s hospitality.

On his fourth and final voyage in 1503 Columbus found himself indire straits. Shipworms had destroyed two of his ships. He wasforced to abandon them and send the rest of his ships to an island wenow know as Jamaica.

The Arawaks were initially keen to help Columbus. They offered himand his sailors food and shelter. However, after six months, tensionsgrew. The ships had still not been repaired. Some of Columbus’s crewhad mutinied and started to run amok on the island robbing andmurdering some of the natives. The Arawaks also grew tired of tradingfresh food for Columbus’s trinkets. They decided to burn theirbridges with the visitors and cut off their food supply.

Faced with starvation, the crafty Columbus studied his almanac. Helearned that on the evening of Thursday, Feb. 29th, 1504, a total lunar eclipse would occur.

He met with the Arawak chief three days before the eclipse and saidhis Christian god was angry with the natives for no longer supplyinghis men with food. He said in three nights time his god would makethe moon red with anger.

Just as Columbus said, the moon rose and slowly turned blood red asit passed into the shadow of the earth. Columbus’s son Ferdinand saidthe Arawaks were terrified.

He wrote how they howled in fear and came running to the ships.They screamed and begged Columbus to ask his god for mercy.

They promised they would cooperate with Columbus if he would turnthe moon back to normal. Columbus said he would talk privately withhis god.

Columbus spent 50 minutes in his cabin calculating the end of theeclipse. He reappeared and announced his god had forgiven theArawaks. Almost in the same instance the moon slowly began toreappear in all its glory.

To show their gratitude the Arawaks kept Columbus and his men wellfed until they returned to Spain on November 7th.
