The Christmas Story Explained by Rupperpoots

We have had a lot of requests, recently one even came with a friendly threat which is why we got right on it, to post some of the stories that Ray Kaattari wrote for South Side Story starting in about 1995 until just before he passed away in 2011. As “Rupperpoots”, Ray wrote about everything from saunas to his trips to Newfinnlant and Lorita, to the books he wrote (there were five) and, of course, his Finglish versions of Bible stories. For those who didn’t know Ray, he wrote his columns in Finglish which was a hilarious combination of the Finnish and English languages.

And so as a first story we thought posting the Finglish version of the Christmas Story would be appropriate for the season.

As always, Rupperpoots’ stories are best read aloud for maximum enjoyment. Good luck – it even took us a while to remember how to decipher Finglish again.
