Jingle Bells - Saturday Centus Week 34

Week 34 of Saturday Centus the prompt is to use up to 100 words (not including the prompt) using the line "The white-bearded fat man rolled through the church doors..."

JINGLE BELLS
The white-bearded fat man rolled through the church doors. . .

He'd known it was going to be one of those nights as soon as his wife handed him his freshly laundered red suit, one look had told him that it had shrunk.

The children all over the world were expecting him, he had a deadline to keep!

So she'd handed him her flowered bath robe assuring him that it was dark and no-one would know.

It had been fine until the Hendersons chimney but now the whole town was chasing him, forcing him to seek sanctuary. . .

In hindsight he realised that he should have remembered to put on his pants.
