Asking for Unicorns

An impossible gift? c/o clipartlibrary.com

A young lad was outside the seasonal grotto of a well known toy store in Greater Manchester

He walked up to Santa, where Santa, in his red gown and white beard, asked him the question “And what do you want for christmas little boy?”

“I want a unicorn….” said the boy

Santa looked worried, he knew the chief elf and his helpers might have a spot of trouble delivering this on Christmas eve night.

“but unicorns are mystical creatures…i can’t deliver one from the north pole…” – Santa smiled. He thought he’d got out of that hole

The little lad pondered – a bit miffed he couldn’t have his first wish – he asked for another instead

“That’s alright Santa, there is a second gift i’d like – I want all the grown-ups to be nice to one another at Christmas time….that means no grumbles, yelling, or disagreements over the dinner table…..and no hunger or anger”

Now that was a biggie…..thought the man in red

So he reached into his bag of toys – and handed the lad a toy engine

“Now….what colour do you want your Unicorn?”
