Many years ago on Christmas Eve, Santa Claus is preparing for his big day tomorrow but nothing is going well. Half the reindeer are sick, the elves are behind on their work and Mrs. Claus’ mother-in-law just arrived for the week.
But then an angel appeared at Santa’s door with a Christmas tree just for him. Santa answered the door to find the angel in front of him. Smiling the angel said to Santa “I found this tree to brighten up your Christmas, now where would you like me to put it?”
And that is how to tradition of the angel at the top of the tree started.
