Now, we all know that Santa doesn’t usually take requests from adults, but she smiled very nicely at him, so he asked her, ‘What do you want for Christmas?’ ‘Something for my mother, please,’ replied Emily sweetly. ‘Something for your mother? Well, that’s very loving and thoughtful of you,’ smiled Santa. ‘What do would you like me to bring her?’ Without turning a hair, Emily answered quickly, ‘A son-in-law.’

The Spirit Of Christmas
Canadian airline WestJet delivered holiday cheer for 250 passengers on a flight to Calgary. The airline placed a digital Santa Claus at an airport and asked passengers what they wanted for Christmas. While everyone was in the air, 175 WestJet workers sprinted to nearby stores. They bought everything they asked the ‘WestJet Santa’ for, from pairs of socks and underwear to big-screen TVs. When the passengers arrived at their destination, everyone was met with their dream gift at baggage claim. This isn’t the first time WestJet has whipped out the holiday cheer, either. Last year, a flash mob of 150 volunteers performed a merry dance in the waiting area for a red-eye flight, complete with Santa on the tarmac and stockings stuffed with new iPods.
Interesting facts about Penguins
Did you ever wonder why there are no dead penguins on the ice in Antarctica? Where do they go?…….. Wonder no more!!!It is a known fact that the penguin is a very ritualistic bird that lives an ordered and complicated life. The penguin is very committed to its family and will mate for life and maintain a form of compassionate contact with its offspring throughout its life. When a penguin is found dead on the ice surface, family members and social circles have been known to dig holes in the ice, using their vestigial wings and beaks, until the hole is deep enough for the dead bird to be rolled into and buried. The male penguins then gather in a circle around the fresh grave and sing:
“Freeze a jolly good fellow.””Freeze a jolly good fellow.
“You really didn’t believe that I know anything about penguins, did you?

I wondered if I could get my husband to help me address Christmas cards, as I had so much to do. I arranged everything we needed, then hopefully pulled up a chair and said, “Come on, Dear, let’s get these out of the way.” He glanced at the array on the table, turned away and went into the den, only to return moments later with a high stack of cards, stamped, sealed, and addressed. “They’re last year’s,” he said. “I forgot to mail them. Now let’s go out to dinner.”
The Last Word
