A Christmas Story told no better than by Mike Perry
from Klatch: "It's called Original Christmas Blend
because it dates back to Santa's first Christmas. As the
story goes, Santa was originally a reindeer farmer in the
highlands of Ethiopia. While allowing the reindeer to
frolic and feed from the vegetation, Santa noticed them
prancing around with extra energy. The reindeer
became so energetic in fact, they began to fly around.
Santa traced this energy to a new tree filled with red
cherries. One reindeer, Rudolf, ate so many cherries his
nose became red. Santa was so inspired; he tried the
cherries himself and loved them. The only problem:
Santa could not sleep at night. So while lying awake one
night, Santa decided to visit the villages and share this
wonderful gift of coffee with everyone. Not to leave the
children out, Santa began making gifts to leave behind
for all the kids. Using the prancing (now flying)
reindeer, Santa took off and delivered the coffee and
gifts to the entire world in one night. Thus, the story of
the first Christmas and the Original Christmas Blend."
Merry Christmas to All!
