Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house not a creature was stirring not even a mouse. Cut! This is a modern day Christmas Story! Sitting back with a martini we pretended to brave the bad weather, the crowds and smiled. Would you care for another dear? Why not! We don’t have to drive. You know the more I think about it Santa should do all his shopping online. Free Delivery and think of how good it would be for the environment. He is getting up in years. Exactly. Though I would like to invite him over for a round of martinis with us. Jolly good fellow. I’ll go hang the stockings with care. I think everyone will love their stocking stuffers. I wonder what time St Nick will arrive? The children are all nestled all snug in their beds. And you’re going to tell me they’re having visions of sugarplums dancing in their heads. You know what your son wants: an iPad. It’s in his stocking. And your daughter Lucy? Diamonds! They’re nestled in her stocking too. Maybe we should settle down for a long winter’s nap. What a wonderful idea! Cheers! Another martini? Why not! It’s almost Christmas. When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter. It must be Santa. He’ll wake up the whole neighborhood. I better go downstairs and let him in. He didn’t use the chimney again? Santa hasn’t used the chimney in years. And what to my wandering eyes should appear but a miniature sleigh (much smaller than I remember) and nine tiny reindeers. Good Evening Santa! He certainly was lively and quick and he introduced me to the tiny reindeer. Well pleased to meet you Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen. And this must be Rudolph. His nose was awfully red. Come on in all of you. ‘The Reindeer too?’ Santa asked Why not! It’s Christmas. I couldn’t help but notice his eyes. How they twinkled. His dimples so merry and his cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry. His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow and the beard of his chin was as white as the snow. Here comes my wife now. Hi Santa. Would you care for a drink? ’Don’t mind if I do’, he said and then added: ‘ Do you have anything stronger than milk?’ Why Santa! Of course you need to have one of Bob’s special martinis. It’s all in the shaking rhythm. They are quite delicious. But then the clock was ticking and Santa said: ‘I better not stay any longer. I have so many gifts to deliver all over the world’ Santa can I ask you a question? Why of course my dear. Why don’t you shop online? You know dear I was discussing that with Mrs Claus this year. I’m not getting any younger and it is very hard work for the reindeer. Let’s drink to that! Next year I’m doing all my shopping at Amoro! And then he sprang to his sleigh with the reindeer following closely behind and away they all flew like the down of a thistle. But I heard him exclaim, ‘ere he drove out of sight, Merry Christmas to all and to all a good-night and next year I’m doing all my shopping online!’ He sure is jolly. And he loved your cookies and the martinis. Rudolph loved them too. The cookies and the martinis! Merry Christmas to All! Amoro. Sensational Fine Jewelry. Sensibly Priced.
