You stand on the Cliff of Life and give birth to a child. Oh no! You’re standing too close to the edge of the Cliff of Life! The baby falls off the cliff right after you give birth to it! In your despair, you throw all your property off the cliff too.
You give birth, and now this happens. Such bad luck. But wait! What's that sound? Sleigh bells? Could it be?! It's Santa-san (さん)! He caught your baby! And all your property.
