Christmassy things - #5

I'm running out of jokes. Christmas jokes.

My kids have an Advent calendar each, given to them years ago by a Great Aunt. They are the felt kind, with pockets.







And every morning, in their calendar, they find a Christmas joke (and occasionally a chocolate coin or something very small and Christmassy).

Last year, I found some printable jokes, like the one in the photo. Which is great, except that on December 15th I will have used them all up!

Do you have a favourite Christmas joke that could go in the calendar?

Some of our favourites so far:

What did one snowman say to the other snowman? Can you smell carrot!

What do you sing at a snowman's birthday party? Freeze a jolly good fellow!

What's a parent's favourite carol? Silent night

What goes, "Oh, 0h, 0h!"? Santa walking backwards!

What does December have that no other month has? The letter D!

Thanks, in anticipation of some good laughs!

  3. Nice jokes :) In my family we always like reading out the ones we get in the Christmas crackers, which are super-corny (especially when told while wearing the paper hat that came with it!)

    1. In the link that Angela gave in the comment above, there was some interesting background to cracker joke writing: "What's the secret of a good Christmas cracker joke? Julian Reed, of Robin Reed Hand-Made Crackers, explains: 'The whole point is that they are not meant to be that funny - they are groan-inducing. The bigger the groan, the better the joke.' Indeed, next to political incorrectness, the main reason jokes are rejected is that they're too funny." , so that explains why they are super-corny!
