Santa Suit" - By Carolee Samuda (Exclusive to Santa.CC)
was close to Christmas and Christine had a deadline to meet. Her
report must be finished and emailed to her boss. It was Christmas
Eve and the computer was acting up. She was halfway through typing
the report when a strange sound came from the computer. She ignored
it and returned to her typing. Suddenly the monitor screen got
so bright that Christine had to shield her eyes from the glare.
The strange sound she heard earlier came through the machine
once more. When the sound stopped and the light dimmed Christine
removed her hands from her face. For a moment she thought that
she had fallen asleep, confused she looked around her to find
that she was no longer at her desk but in a snowy forest. Well
that's how she could describe it for there were hundreds of pine
trees with ice crystals and snow flakes. The ground was covered
with the white stuff and to make it more bizarre was her outfit!
Christine was clad in what appeared to be a Santa suit, belt
and boots to match but there was something different. The suite
was purple, not red!
"I know this is a dream. I'll wake up any minute now to finish
my report," she told herself.
Deciding to find her way out of the forest, Christine started
walking when she saw it. There is was as if beckoning to her.
She grabbed the sack and opened it and as she did, a light emanated
from it. As she looked inside the sack she could see all the names
of the children whose presents were inside. She knew who were
naughty and who were nice. Christine quickly closed the purple
sack and shook her head.
"Have to get out of here!"
Subconsciously throwing the sack over her shoulder she continued
walking. Then she heard a sound behind her. She stopped and the
sound stopped. She started walking again and she heard the sound
again. Christine panicked and started running. She ran right into
a sleigh. She hopped right in and touched some buttons but nothing.
"How do you work this thing?"
The footsteps were getting closer as she could hear them approaching
the sleigh then there was a screech and the sound stopped. Trembling,
Christine looked up to see her stalker and a gasp escaped her
lips to see a bunch of reindeer!
On her count there were nine and each of them walked to the head
of the sleigh and their reins were automatically clicked in place.
There was a vibration and the sleigh slowly ascended with the
deers galloping in the air!
It was then that the mirror in the sleigh caught Christine's
eye and a scream escaped her. The reindeer all stopped in mid
air as the sound almost deafened them. Then to Christine's surprise
the one in the lead turned around and asked, "What's wrong Miss
Christine didn't faint, but she wanted to. It was her hair that
mortified her. It was platinum blond and growing. Christine had
dark brown should length hair that was mostly unruly. She hated
it and wanted to die it black and here she sat in a sleigh with
blond hair that glistened and sparkled and almost reached her
Now things got weirder as her once brown eyes had turned blue
and they too sparkled and twinkled. Something within her also
sparkled and twinkled as she accepted her new look.
"On with it boys!" She said and at her command the rein deers
were on their way.
Christine was Miss Santa and delivered all the presents too the
little boys and girls. Her skin glowed with pink rosy cheeks.
She ate cookies and drank milk the whole night long. When the
sack was empty if filled up again until the last name of the invisible
At the end of it the sleigh returned to the forest where they
were met by the real Santa. Well we wont tell you why Santa stopped
in the forest...let's just say he had some bad milk!
He told her the suit changes to purple when a woman wears it.
He then fished one last present from the sack and gave to Christine,
then he sprinkled a little gold dust about and when she awoke
she was back at her computer wearing a purple Santa hat.
