The family was decorating their christmas tree, when suddenly they ran out of decorations. "Let's get one christmassy thing each to decorate our tree!" they said, and off they went.
The father found a small angel for the top of the tree, the mother made some stars out of cardboard, the younger sister found some extra tinsel, and the older brother brought out some of his girlfriend's hot pink knickers. "What on earth are they?" yelled his rather upset and confused parents, to which he indignantly replied, "They're Carol's!"
Santa's running late, the presents are behind schedule and there are problems with the elf union again, so he's understandably a little tense. On Christmas Eve, there are still thousands of presents to make, and only a few hours left. Luckily an angel sees Santa is upset, so she brings him a large and brushy christmas tree to cheer him up. "Here you are, Nick" she says, "where can I stick this lovely tree?"
And there started the tradition of an angel atop the christmas tree.

If you've ever been on an ELAL flight, you'll understand the next one...
El Al Flight - mid December - landing in Tel-Aviv... As the El Al plane settled down at Ben Gurion airport, the voice of the captain came on: "Please remain seated with your seat belts fastened until this plane is at a complete standstill and the seat belt signs have been turned off. We also wish to remind you that using cell phones on board this aircraft is strictly prohibited. To those of you who are seated, we wish a Merry Christmas and hope that you enjoy your stay, and to those of you standing in the aisles and talking on your cell phones, we wish you a Happy Chanukah and welcome back home."
