Santa's Bad Day

(Ole Martin Bjørndalen)


A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, Santa Claus was busy delivering Christmas presents to all the children in the known universe. He had just left Naboo, and was making his way to a remote settlement on the desert planet Tatooine when something went terribly wrong.


His sleigh hit a rock, and one of its runners broke off! Santa was thrown off head first into the sand.


The sleigh was beyond repair. Santa couldn't help thinking about all the poor children who wouldn't get their presents.


Then he saw someone arriving on a landspeeder. "I wonder who it could be," he thought.


A tall guy who looked just like Liam Neeson stood up and spoke to Santa. "I am Qui-Gon and this is Anakin," he said. "I know he's just a kid, but give me a few hours and I'll make a Jedi out of him."

"Wow, that's amazing," said santa, "but I wonder if you can help me. You see, my sleigh broke down, and there will be sixty trillion disappointed kids out there if I don't get to them in time. And that's only in this galaxy."

"Well, we are on our way to save Naboo from an invasion," said Qui-Gon, "but apart from that we are not doing anything in particular. Hop in, we'll give you a ride."

Christmas was saved! "Thank you. That's very nice," said Santa, "but let me give Anakin his present first."


Santa opened his bag and fished out a shiny cylinder which he gave to Anakin. "The force is strong with you," he said. "I sense that you will become a very naughty boy, but so far you have been nice, so I'll give you this dangerous light sabre."

"Neato," replied Anakin.


And off they went. They had almost reached the settlement when something went terribly wrong.


The landspeeder hit a rock, and one of its engines blew off! Santa, Qui-Gon and Anakin were thrown off head first into the sand.


The engine was beyond repair. Even Anakin didn't know how to fix it. Santa couldn't help thinking about all the poor children who wouldn't get their presents.


Then an enormous space ship appeared. "I wonder who it could be," said Santa.

...and so on...
