Smile of the Day

Life is getting much too serious, yes? Who doesn't need a daily smile?

A letter from Santa

Hello out there to all people of the world. This is Santa, and I just wanted to let you know that Christmas may be a little late this year. After checking all the boxes and tallying them up, I found some problems with the results.

The first result showed:
GOOD: 428,534,120
BAD: 428,523,119

However, when I checked the list a second time, I found a different result:
GOOD: 428,534,118
BAD: 428,523,121

I can't in good faith go out and deliver presents while knowing I could have made a mistake. Maybe little Johnny was good for once; then again, maybe not.

Thus I have enlisted the help of all my elves and the Mrs to do a recount. We hope to have this finished up by 5 pm on the 24th of December, but there is a possibility that it might take longer. The problem is that that the tally cards are not quite clear to me. I know I made them myself, but I forgot what they meant. And the check marks I used were not all the same, some went left, some right, some were just a mark, some went through both boxes, and some of the tally cards didn't seem to have much of a mark on them at all. So I will leave it up to the elves to decide what I meant.

Therefore, if you wake up on Christmas morning and there are no presents under your tree, at least you can explain why to the children. Thank you for your patience and understanding in these awkward times.
