Funny Santa Sleigh Cartoons
Here is Will and Guy's collection of Santas with their toboggans, or other funny snow vehicles.
Santa Claus' sleigh broke down on Christmas Eve. He flagged down a passing motorist and asked, 'Can you help me fix my toboggan, please?'
'Sorry,' the car driver replied, 'I'm not a mechanic - I'm a chiropodist.'
'In that case,' said Santa, 'Please can you give me a tow?' [Toe]

Santa Claus Sleigh Flies Off-course!
An aeroplane was flying over the jungle when the engine stalled. The pilot ejected and drifted gently down to land. Unfortunately he landed in a large cooking pot which was gently simmering over a low fire.
All the local tribesmen turned to look at him until the chief, blinking in disbelief asked, 'What's this flya doing in my soup?' (You've guessed it - out of a Christmas cracker.)
Sleighs: Some Interesting Facts
When Catherine the Great* travelled from St. Petersburg to Moscow for her coronation ceremony, the court followed in fourteen large sleighs and nearly 200 smaller ones. The grandest sleigh in the entourage was a miniature palace on runners; in addition to a bedroom, it contained an area in which to entertain and a small library.
*Catherine II, known as Catherine the Great of Russia (1729-1796) was Russian Csarina 1762-1796.
Vandals Strike Father Christmas' Sled
French police have had their wish granted after writing to Father Christmas to ask for new police cars. Police in Marignane, near Marseille told Santa 'even your sleigh is faster' after being told there was not enough money in the coffers to replace their ageing cars. The letter, addressed to Father Christmas and written on official police note paper, read, 'Dear Santa, our cars can't handle the job any more. If you think we are exaggerating, you can try out the cars yourself. Even your sleigh is better than one of them.'
Local authorities have now put up the cash to buy new cars for police after seeing the letter published in the Christmas stories section of a local paper.

The German newspaper Munster am Sonntagg reports that a speeding Santa will have to find a new way to deliver his presents this year after German police have prosecuted him and he has received a driving ban.
Bernhard Siewert, 36, was stopped by road traffic police near Munster while dressed as Father Christmas. He said he was only speeding because he was late for a festive party at an OAPs home where he had to give out presents.
The police officers said they had caught him on camera driving at 92 mph in a 60 mph zone and could not ignore the law even for Santa.
Bernhard was given a fine and a three-month driving ban.

With Bells On It
You will have heard the expression: "We'll be there with bells on," but do you know the origins of the saying? We have researched this using the internet.
Apparently, years ago, once snow had a good covering on the ground, people used horse drawn sleds and sleighs. The rural roads were unadopted [had no tarmacadam] and the runners of these vehicles left ruts to be followed in the deep snow cover and in the mud. Many folk walked to their destinations and used the ruts as "the path of least" resistance to follow.
In the winter months, these pedestrians were bundled up from head to toe against the cold, it was impossible for them to hear a sleigh coming until it was on top of them. The snow cushioned the hoof beats and made the runners almost silent. Drivers and riders in these open vehicles got the full brunt of the wind and cold in their faces, making visibility dicey at best; nonexistent in the dark. Consequently, the foot traveller was at great risk of mortal injury.
Bells, handmade, by local blacksmiths, were attached to the harnesses and leather trappings so the walkers hear them coming and could quickly "get out of their rut", before being run over.
Since each bell was slightly different in shape and size, it had its own sound. Putting a set together meant that each person's horse harness had its own distinctive sound and rhythm with the horses movements. People would know long before seeing them, who was coming down the lane.
Inhabitants living in roadside homes could tell who was passing and in what direction they were going without looking. They also knew when there was a stranger in the vicinity or someone was using new harnesses. If company was coming, people might say: "We'll be there with bells on", so you knew, even in the dark, when they were coming down the lane and could meet them at the door with a smile, a hug and a warm drink.
Jingle Bells - In-sleigh Music
Jingle Bells is one of the most famous American Christmas songs. Apparently Will and Guy have discovered it was originally written for Thanksgiving.
The author and composer of Jingle Bells was a minister called James Pierpoint who composed the song in 1857 for children celebrating his Boston Sunday School Thanksgiving.
The song became so popular that it was repeated at Christmas, and indeed Jingle Bells has been reprised ever since. The essence of a traditional Christmas is captured in the lyrics of Jingle Bells and the sound effects using the bells have become synonymous with the arrival of Father Christmas or Santa Claus to the delight of children of all ages. Incidentally, we have learned that Pierpoint originally named his song: "On a one horse open sleigh."
