Santa Claus was melancholy because he had no gifts left for himself. He wept.
As tears trickled down his beard, two white owls arrived, bringing him a present. It was a professional beard trimmer sent by the hatted boy. Santa cheered up.
‘What a capital fellow this hatted boy is!’

A caring capital fellow 🙂 Love the pic too 🙂
it seems this has been a hard christmas for santa 😛
What did you get for Christmas?
I got the two things I needed most in the world, a big purse and lots of socks, among other stuff 😀 I really had a great Christmas this year, the best in years!
Aw, it’s ironic how your name wasn’t on the list (in your 50 word story – Christmas special 1) and the only gift Santa received was from ya! Haaha, I’d love to be Santa’s Santa!
The hatted boy will be remembered next Christmas!
He would like to receive as a gift a girl with inky hair!
I like the idea of Santa using the word ‘capital’
Shaved Santa? Hmm… I prefer him the way he is!
