Gloria the Christmas Goose

One of these years, not too long ago, two sisters lived together in a cozy little house in a small village near the mountains. Every year, they had a big Christmas Dinner with their friends and family. They always made a big ham and at least two types of stuffing, baked apples, sweet potatoes, corn on the cob, green beans, brussle-sprouts cranberries, pies, cakes, cookies, and anything you can imagine. It always was a great feast and everyone enjoyed it.

This year, the sisters wanted to cook something truly spectacular: A Goose.

Early in the year, they went to the local goose farmer and bought a baby goose to raise it until Christmas and then prepare and eat it. They named the goose Gloria, a fitting name they thought for a goose that was going to be eaten on Christmas day.

Every morning when the sisters had breakfast, Gloria the goose came into the room and quaked for food. She was fed only the very best and grew nicely over the year. Her feathers were brushed daily to shine beautifully. The sisters dug a pond just for her so she could go for a swim and get strong and lean muscles and not too much fat from all the good food. Gloria lived the life of a queen in the sisters’ household. In the evenings, they told Gloria bedtime stories or sang her a lullaby.

The months passed by and Gloria grew into a happy and healthy adult goose.

It was two days before Christmas. The sisters started the preparation for their Christmas feast. They baked several pies and cakes and cookies, used fresh cranberries instead of canned for the cranberry sauce, cleaned the ears of corn, made fruit punch, glazed apples for the children and prepared their own eggnog. During all the preparations, Gloria was present in the kitchen and received a little snack here and there.
It was the day before Christmas and time to slaughter and prepare the goose. The two sisters were sitting in the kitchen with a butcher’s knife in hand looking at Gloria the Goose. She was round from all the good food and her feathers were shining from all the brushing. Minutes passed by and the sisters did not move. Finally, one of them took the butchers knife, handed it to the other sister and said: “Here, you do it, I can’t!” The other sister shook her head and replied:”No, you do it! It was your idea to have a goose for Christmas in the first place!” she left the room and left her sister alone with the goose and the butcher’s knife.

A couple hours later she came back to see Gloria the Goose lying on the floor with her tongue sticking out of her mouth. She asked:”What did you do?!” her sister replied:”I could not chop her head off, so I gave her a bottle of valium instead.” After a couple tears for her dear goose, they pulled her feathers off and put her in a cool place to stay fresh for the next day, when she was supposed to be baked.

They went to bed with a heavy heart and sadly looked over to the pillow that was Gloria’s bed for so many months.

The next morning, the sisters were woken by some noise. At first, they did not know what it was or where it came from but fairly quick they realized that it was a quack that woke them up and sure enough into the bedroom came Gloria. Naked, but happy and very alive. The Sisters were so joyful that they had not killed Gloria that they forgot the Christmas dinner altogether for a short while.
But soon the reality hit them and they had to make a fast decision as to what to make for the big feast. Everyone who was invited expected a goose for Christmas.

Then they had THE idea............

In the evening, after everyone had arrived, they were wondering where the goose was they heard so much about since it did not smell like a goose roasting in the oven. The sisters smirked, went into the kitchen and brought out a goose crafted out of different kinds of fruit that was put together to form the shape of a goose and behind them, the actual Christmas goose, Gloria came into the room but not naked – she had a dress out of white wool that the sisters knit for her really fast in the morning.

Even though there was no Christmas goose added to the feast that year as promised, it was the best Christmas everyone ever had including Gloria, who got all the goodies from the table.
Gloria never became the Christmas dinner and lived happily for seven more years before she died a happy and normal goose death.

Merry Christmas Everyone!!!! Smile

Eska the Texas Reindeer

He's lovable and cuddly,
Playful and funny.
He's protective and watchful,
Loyal and a handful.
He's fast as the wind, jumps high as the sky,
He doesn't like to be out on a cold, winter's night.
The others live for pulling the sleigh,
But he is stubborn, and has to have his own way.
He wants to be home where he can take his nap,
In his favorite place, Mrs. Clause's lap!!
