How Santa Got His Job by Stephen Krensky

Did you know that Santa hasn’t always been Santa? It’s true. In his younger years he was a chimney sweep, but he lost that job because he always got it done without getting dirty and no one thought he was actually doing his job. Then he tried working for the post office, but that didn’t work out because he thought he could deliver mail to people faster, so he tried doing it in the middle of the night. People didn’t appreciate the late night deliveries, so he lost that job, too. Then he tried working in a diner…lost that job because he was sampling all the sweet treats. Got a job at the zoo, but lost that one because he was favoring the reindeer and the other animals got jealous. He does eventually stumble upon the perfect job and the rest is history.
