The Miracle of St Wilfred

 In the village of White-Hall in those days, when Great King Boris had shown his power over foreigners by letting them catch very slightly fewer fish, there came word of the Miracle of Saint Wilfred.

Wilfred was the son of St Boris, and possessed of a miraculous head of golden hair from the day that he was born. Another miracle was that although his parents had said he would not be in the public eye, yet he used to appear in the Mail when his father did not want too much close scrutiny. 

But this latest miracle surpassed all the others - for did he not, at eight months old, paint a portrait of Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer? And kept his colouring within the lines?

And the people beheld the reindeer, and the miraculous hair, and cried out "Surely this is no mere child, but one of the cherubim, come in human form in Boris's line.

Though some said Boris himself had helped and done most of the colouring for him, others pointed out he could never have raised that much energy.

And then it was revealed that the babe could also sing "Old Macdonald Had a Farm." But the Cynics wondered, if this were true, just when he had been born.
