On Christmas Eve, I decided it would be nice to buy my wife a little gift for the next day.

I'm always short of money, I thought long and hard about what the Christmas present might be.

Unable to decide, I entered a well known store and in the cosmetics section I asked the sales girl,'' How about

some perfume?'' She showed me a bottle costing £75

''Too expensive'' I muttered to her.

The young lady returned with a smaller bottle for £50.

''Oh dear'' I groused

Growing rather annoyed at my meanness, the sales girl brought out at a tiny £10 bottle and offered it to me.

I became really agitated, ''What ,I mean,'' I whined ''is I'd like to see something really cheap.''

So the sales girl handed me a mirror !!!

I mean ! where is the spirit of Christmas nowadays ?



Oh little town of Bethlehem



Why does Father Christmas go down the chimney?

Because it soots him !




Go along to your local group for some festive friendship
