Santa ‘furious’ as weather grounds Rudolph
Father Christmas has spoken of his intense anger and frustration as chief airborne reindeer, Rudolph, announced that flights were indefinitely delayed due to the inclement weather conditions.

A spokeself for Rudolph insisted that whilst his first priority was to clear the backlog of passengers, normal service would be resumed in the New Year, reassuring millions of children that they could expect to receive their presents somewhere around January 5th.Click to send this story to a friend
