Does Santa Claus own a harmonium?

see the text on the page




Santa Claus Harmonium

We received the above picture showing Santa Claus playing his harmonium, an Estey.
Obviously this is shere American patriotism.

A well-known Scientists from France (who will remain unnamed due to religious matters) proved that Santa Clause does have a harmonium in European style, and a clear picture was supplied.
The picture was taken 4 weeks after Christmas in his "Chateau Rudolphe"
at the Cote d’Alsace.

This page of the booklet is printed slightly bigger than usual on cd pages. Due to a small misunderstanding in the text.

The Alexandre is in the Dutch edition exposed as having 14 ranks, where the writer meant to say 14 stops (The translater had it right).

Hence, the board of Harmoniumnet has decided to fine the textwriter to pay a fine of € 50,00 payable to the Harmonium Museum.

Further more a fine of € 50,00 for changing the name Rodolphe to Rudolphe. Althoug I am almost sure that Rudolphe is the Harmonium of Santa Claus.
That's € 100,00 payable to the Harmonium Museum, because the typos are in the Dutch text.
