An after-Christmas story by Ron Jaenisch
Santa completed his rounds at Christmas and went on a one-month vacation in Mexico. When he got
back to the North Pole he realized that it was once again time to raise funds for the Christmas toys. Since
it was only February he knew he had lots of time.
"I've got more than $40,000 left over from last Christmas and I'll be needing $4 million this year," he said
to Mrs. Claus.
She answered, "Dear, this year instead of doing fund-raisers what about raising it by trading the futures
"You may have a point there," he said. "After all, these bones are getting weary and it is effective."
