Anna was going to the Xmas office party but needed a new dress.
So she went into a dress shop and asked the assistant, ‘May I try on that dress in the window, please?’
‘Certainly not, madam,’ responded the assistant, ‘You’ll have to use the fitting room like everyone else.’
Lucy lost her handbag in the hustle and bustle of Xmas shopping.
A small boy found it and he returned to her. Looking in her purse, Lucy reasoned, ‘Hmmm…. that’s strange. When I lost my bag there was a $20 note in it. Now there are four $5 notes.’
The boy quickly replied with a charming smile, ‘That’s right, the last time I found a lady’s purse, she didn’t have any change for a reward.’
Daniel aged 4, returned from Sunday school with a new perspective on the Christmas story.
He had learned all about the wise men from the east who brought gifts to the baby Jesus.
Daniel was so excited he just had to tell his parents, ‘I learned in Sunday School today all about the very first Christmas. There wasn’t a Santa Claus way back then, so these three blokes on camels had to deliver all the toys. And Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer with his nose so bright wasn’t there yet, so they had to have this big light in the sky to find their way around’.

Little Known Christmas Fact
It was Christmas eve, and Santa was really busy making his list and checking it twice, when there came a knock at the door.
His wife comes in. “Honey, where do you want me to put your boots and gloves?” Well, Santa is very busy and so he’s slightly annoyed by this trivial question, so he snaps at her, “Put them by the front door, and stop bothering me. I’m trying to get some work done.”
He starts back to work, but a few minutes later an elf barges in. “Santa, we got all the toys wrapped, what should we do with them?” Santa snaps, “Stick ’em in the sleigh! Can’t you see I’m trying to get ready? I don’t want any more interruptions!”
But sure enough, as soon as he starts back to work, there is another interruption. An angel, standing at the door, says, “Santa, I have your Christmas tree. Where would you like me to put it?”
And that my friends, is how the little angel came to be on top of the Christmas tree.
Xmas Thank You Notes
One Christmas, mom decreed that she was no longer going to remind her children of their thank-you note duties.
As a result, their grandmother never received acknowledgments of the generous cheques she had given the children for Christmas.
The next Christmas things were a little different, however.
“The children came over in person to thank me for the generous Christmas gifts” the grandparent told a friend triumphantly.
“How wonderful!” the friend exclaimed. “What do you think caused the change in behavior?”
“Oh, that’s easy,” the grandmother replied. “This year I didn’t sign the cheques.”
