Sloth Plays Santa on Christmas Eve
A Short Childrens Story

By Ms. Margie Sue

The bright red thing on the man’s head looked from a distance to the nearsighted parrot just like the red flowers that he loved so much.

Parrot Sloth Plays Santa on Christmas EveHe decided to grab it from the man.  He was flying happily away with his find. But, this was bunchy and didn’t feel like a floral item at all, so after a while, he dropped it and went off to look for something better.

The sloth hanging upside down from the branch nearby was surprised to find this odd thing land on his stomach.

“What is this?” the sloth wondered aloud.

A passing monkey heard him and gave him a reply.

“That’s a Santa hat,” she said.

“What’s a Santa hat?” the sloth asked, slowly turning the strange thing around with his claw to see all sides of it.

“There’s a guy who goes around giving people things once a year. He wears a whole outfit that matches that hat. People like to dress up like him around this time.” The monkey was all about color coordination.

“What kinds of things and how?” the sloth asked next.

“Things they like and he rides in a flying box that deer pull,” was the answer.

“Why?”

The parrot shrugged. “A holiday they call Christmas when people think about doing nice things.”

And saying that, the monkey went on her way.

The sloth thought to himself. “I’d like to do that. Now I have the hat. Next, I need things to give away and a travel box and something to pull it.”

He started by gathering insects and leaves from his tree, storing them in a nearby hollow in his tree. Other animals and birds heard what he was doing and contributed seeds, flowers and other types of insects.

Gorilla Sloth Plays Santa on Christmas EveWhen the gorilla heard the story, he offered to build something to carry him. The offer was accepted and soon, by lashing together fallen branches with vines, the gorilla had made a type of sled with branches fastened on top of each edge branch to enclose it.

“Thank you so much,” exclaimed the delighted sloth.

“You’re very welcome,” returned the gorilla.

The okapi, who was much like a deer, offered to pull the travel box and allow the sloth to distribute his gifts.

On Christmas Eve, the okapi was harnassed to the travel box and the sloth had come down slowly from his tree. Birds had helped bring the gifts down.

The sloth was now upright and the gorilla lifted him into the travel box.

“Now I’ll put on the hat,” said the sloth and on it went.

“Ready?” inquired the okapi.

“Oh, yes, but don’t go too fast. You know I’m a sloth.”

So the okapi started to walk through the rainforest and the sloth tossed the gifts over each side of the traveling box to the animals gathered to watch.

This was just at nightfall and when the stars began to come out everyone heard a jingling sound, then a “Ho, ho, ho!”

Next, anyone knew the sloth and his traveling box wasn’t attached to the okapi anymore but to the back of a large flying traveling box. A man with a hat like the sloth’s and a suit to match was guiding eight deer back into the sky.

Santa Sloth Plays Santa on Christmas EveThe sloth had hardly recovered from his surprise when he heard the man say, “A Santa sloth! This is wonderful! You can help me bring presents to all the animals of the world.”

And that’s exactly what he did. As they flew over each continent and country, the sloth found his box filled with things the animals that lived there would like. For example, eucalyptus for koalas in Australia, leaves and twigs for zebras in Africa, and fruits and nuts for black bears in Asia.

The food would magically appear in his traveling box and the sloth’s merest movement would send it where it needed to go.

The sloth saw places he’d never dreamed of before, large areas with nothing but water, other areas with nothing but sand and other areas with nothing but snow and ice. There were areas with large mountains and places with plants and animals that were beautiful. He even saw the fish and sea creatures enjoying the treats they were getting.

Soon, the sky began to turn a dark blue and dawn was coming.

Santa Claus arrived back at the sloth’s tree.

“Thank you for your help, Santa Sloth. Merry Christmas!”

The sloth’s traveling box disconnected from the large flying box and floated gently down. The trip down was slow enough for the sloth to grab a branch and settle in comfortably before the box landed on the ground.

The sloth had never traveled that fast or that far in his life and even though he was still excited, he was very tired now, too.

“That was the best night of my life,” the sloth said. As he was tucking his hat into the hollow of his tree for next year, he saw some of his favorite fruit. It was a gift from Santa. Before he fell asleep, he said “Ho………ho………ho!    Mer…….ry……..Christ……..mas!”

The End!
