Santa stuck in a chimney – a true story!

Today the elves wanted me to tell them the famous “Santa stuck in a chimney” story.

Everyone wants to know how I fit down a chimney. I’ll tell you, it is tricky. Chimneys today are smaller than they used to be (or maybe I’m a little bigger, ho ho ho). So here it is, my famous “Santa stuck in a chimney” story.

Up The Chimney He Rose

It wasn’t my round tummy that got me stuck. Instead it was my red suit. It got caught on something inside the chimney. I couldn’t go up and I couldn’t go down. Only my head and arms were outside the chimney. I was flapping my arms like a partridge in a pear tree.

I whistled to my reindeer. After all, I knew one good tug from Rudolph and I would be out. They didn’t hear me because they were all asleep! I could hear them snoring so I didn’t want to shout. I might wake up the children in the house.

Then I had a great idea. I would sing a Christmas song. I cleared my throat and opened my mouth to sing, “You better watch out, you better not cry,” when I heard a little child’s voice say, “Mommy”.

Oh no. Someone was awake. I wondered if they could see me stuck up in the chimney. I was glad Mrs. Claus told me to wear my black boots. Black boots don’t show in a dark chimney. I wanted to wear my gold boots because they are more festive, but Mrs. Claus knows best.

I listened as the little child asked for a story. The mommy began, “Twas the night before Christmas.”

I really love that story, so I rested my head on the chimney top and listened. Snow fell softly on my cheeks like kisses.

Santa stuck in a chimney… still!

Then I remembered I didn’t have time to be stuck in the chimney. I had presents to deliver.

So, I took off my hat and threw it at Rudolph. I got him right on his red nose. He woke up and saw my snowy white beard hanging down the top of the chimney. With a dash, a tug and a rip my team of reindeer pulled me from the chimney. “Ho ho ho,” I laughed loudly. My red pants had ripped and fell around my ankles. Luckily, Mrs. Claus always makes sure I have a few extra pair! With a little magic, I made all my deliveries by Christmas morning.

Now, whenever I hear “Twas the night before Christmas”, I think about the famous “Santa stuck in a chimney” story.  My elves even posted “Twas the night before Christmas” online so they can tease me!

  9. Hello Santa,

    We are in our classroom in England getting excited about Christmas. We’ve just done our Christmas Nativity and even had someone dressed as you in it. We are thinking about our favourite Christmas stories. The ones we like are The Polar Express, The Night Before Christmas, The Christmasorous, The Snowman, Rudolf and Frozen. We also like many more. Anyways enjoy your wii sport game. It looks like lots of fun!

    Lots of Christmas hugs!

  10. Um it is 12/9/16 and we have calculated that there are actually 16 days till Christmas including today

    That’s because where Christmas first starts it is already tomorrow so it was 15 days there but it’s 16 where you are because you are still yesterday! What can I say, I know the magic of time zones! – SC
