man bought a goose for Christmas and hung it in his hall. Along came
two soldiers and one climbed up onto the roof to steal the goose away
while the other went into the cottage to distract the owners. “Hello, master,” the soldier greeted the man before he started to sing his Christmas Carol. “In the forest, in the forest, A soldier at Stresa, Pushes the Eves away, And takes up the goose, On a holly night.
“Thank you soldier,” the master laughed. “I’ve never heard that song, where did you hear it.” “You’ll see tomorrow,” the soldier assured the man. The
next morning when his wife, the hostess of the Christmas party climbed
up to get the goose there was no sign that it had ever been there.
