Euro leaders are to decide if they should cancel Christmas or not. The state of the economy looks like it may be a yes.
"The Italian Prime Minister always buys the Greek Prime Minister a Christmas present and so the other way round but this year it would appear that neither country can do it," a Euro insider said.
It is thought the Prime Minister of Great Britain has bought the President of the United States a small Island and as an added gift says he'll fund the Island for at least ten years. The US President has responded by sending more Mexicans over to Britain to help with work that isn't there.
Even Santa Claus is feeling the pinch, 'I'm only using two reindeer this year, one of the others is Christmas dinner!'
