Could Santa miss Christmas? Is it
possible? What if Santa's alarm did not go off on the most important day
of the year? In this cute story "Hurry, Santa!" it happens. Santa's
alarm clock does not go off. Luckily, Santa's little mouse comes to the
rescue. While Santa is now running a little late, he can still make his
rounds. At least he thinks he can, until he
goes outside and finds his reindeer are gone. Things just get
worse for poor Santa. He finds four of his eight reindeer and decides to
just fly with them. Santa's luck just gets worse as the night goes on. From a stuck sleigh
to fighting the rising sun, Santa rushes. He can still make it. Whew! Santa
arrives back at the North Pole having made all his deliveries, at least he
thought he did. An exhausted Santa grabs his sack and much to his dismay there was a
present at the bottom. "Oh no, how awful!" He cried. "Iíve forgotten
someone!" All the animals gather around and tell Santa that the present is
for him. Santa hurries to open his gift, wondering what it could be. Can
you guess what the animals gave Santa? A new alarm clock!
