CHRISTMAS EVE
REVISION BY PAPA JACK



IT WAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS AND ALL THRU THE HOUSE. NOTHING WAS MOVING AROUND NOT EVEN THAT LAZY OLD CAT, WHO WAS SNOOZING IN FRONT OF THE FIRE PLACE. ALL THE STOCKINGS WERE HUNG IN THE PROPER PLACES IN HOPES THAT THEY WOULDN’T BE FILLED WITH COAL.

THE GRANDKIDS WERE ALL SNUG IN THERE SLEEPING BAGS. THEY WERE SPREAD ALL OVER THE BASEMENT FLOOR. WHO COULD GUESS WHAT THEY WERE DREAMING ABOUT.

GRANDMA WAS SLEEPING REAL GOOD. SHE HAD PUT HER HEARING AID IN THE BOX AND SHE WOULDN’T HAVE HEARD A TORNADO IF WE GOT ONE. ME, I WAS STILL TRYING TO GET TO SLEEP AND WAS JUST DOZING OFF WHEN I HEARD THIS LOUD ROAR IN MY BACKYARD. IT SOUNDED LIKE A JET PLANE WAS LANDING.

I JUMPED OUT OF BED, GRABBED MY GLASSES, AND RAN TO MY WINDOW. YOU WOULDN’T BELIEVED WHAT I SAW. WE HADN’T HAD ANY SNOW YET. SO THE YARD WAS KIND OF DREARLY LOOKING. BUT THERE WAS THIS THING IN MY YARD. IT HAD RUNNERS LIKE A SLED AND IT ALSO HAD BIG WHEELS JUST LIKE A WAGON. I GUESS IT WAS A SLEGON. IT WAS BEING PULLED BY NINE DEER, EIGHT OF THEM HAD JET PACKS ON THEIR BACKS AND THE ONE IN THE FRONT. LOOKED LIKE HE HAD A FLASHLIGHT IN HIS MOUTH. THEY WERE BEING CONTROLED BY THIS OLD MAN IN A RED SUIT WITH A FUNNY HAT JUST LIKE THE ONE I HAVE ON.

HE GOT OUT OF THE SLEGON, AND HE LOOKED AT MY HOUSE. WE HAD A RANCH STYLE HOME WITH ONLY ONE FLOOR. SO THIS GUY TOOK A SMALL TRAMBOLENE OUT OF THE SLEGON AND WALKED IN FRONT OF THE DEER AND PUSHED THE NOSE OF THE LEAD ONE AND IT TURNED OUT THE LIGHT. HE THEN PUT THE TRAMBOLEAN NEXT TO THE HOUSE AND TOOK A COUPLE OF RUNNING STEPS AND JUMPED ON IT, AND WAS SHOT UP TO THE ROOF. I HEARD A THUMP AND THEN FOOTSTEPS WALKING OVER TOWARDS THE CHIMNEY. THEN ALL OF SUDDEN THERE WAS A WHOOSE AND A CRASH. THEN THAT LAZY OLD CAT LET OUT LOUD MEOW AND THEN I HEARD ANOTHER CRASH. IT SEEMED, WHEN THE OLD MAN CAME DOWN THE CHIMNY HE SCARED THE CAT SO BAD, THAT THE OLD CAT JUMPED AND KNOCKED DOWN THE TREE. THE OLD MAN LOOKED AROUND THE FAMILY ROOM. HE PICKED UP THE TREE AND FROM A SACK HE HAD WITH HIM HE PUT LOTS OF PRESENTS UNDER THE TREE. THEN HE WENT TO THE STOCKINGS AND PUT A BIG RED APPLE AND A BIG ORANGE IN EACH THEM. HE THEN LOOKED AROUND AND SPOTTED SOME COOKIES AND MILK SOMEONE HAD PUT OUT. HE GRABBED A COUPLE OF COOKIES AND DRANK THE MILK AND HE THEN TURNED AROUND AND WAS HEADING FOR THE CHEMNY WHEN HE CHANGED HIS MIND AND WENT OUT THE PATIO DOOR. WHEN HE OPENED DOOR THE HOUSE ALARM WENT OFF AND HE RAN TO HIS SLEGON. HE PICKED UP HIS TRAMBOLENE THREW IT IN THE BACK AND JUMPED IN THE SEAT. HE YELLED OUT FIRE UP, DASHER, DANCER, PRANCER, VIXEN, COMET, CUPID, DONDER, BLITZEN. COME ON RUDY LIGHT THE WAY.

THE SLEGON WAS JUST LIFTING OFF WHEN THE POLICE CAME AROUND THE CORNOR TO ANSWERE THE ALARM.

AS HE ROSE TO THE AIR THE OLD MAN SANG, OUT HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESUS, AND MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT. THEN HE MUST HAVE HIT A BUTTON BECAUSE THOSE DEER WENT INTO WARP SPEED AND HE WAS GONE.
