It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas, Part III

Running back and forth to the V.A. Hospital and clinic this week hasn’t allowed me to do much reflecting and serious blog writing. Soooooooooooo, I’ll let the words and graphics of others speak for me today.

But first, my thanks to Penelope Anne/Sassy Sally for this munificent memento:


There will be no Nativity Scene in the United State Congress, this year!

· The Supreme Court has ruled that there cannot be a Nativity Scene in the United States capital this Christmas season.

· This isn't for any religious reason; they simply have not been able to find three wise men and a virgin in the Nation's capital.

· There was no problem, however, finding enough asses to fill the stable.

A guy bought his wife a beautiful diamond ring for Christmas. After hearing about this extravagant gift, a friend of his said, "I thought she wanted one of those sporty four-wheel-drive vehicles." "She did," he replied. "But where was I going to find a fake Jeep?"

Two young boys were spending the night at their grandparents. At bedtime, the two boys knelt beside their beds to say their prayers when the youngest one began praying at the top of his lungs.


His older brother leaned over and nudged the younger brother and said, "Why are you shouting your prayers? God isn't deaf."

To which the little brother replied, "No, but Gramma is!"

I hope you've enjoyed this Part III of It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas.

I shall now capture Alex and return to bed for (another) extended catnap!


  1. Yep, time for the Christmas jokes!
    Kiss Alex for me!

  2. Cute jokes Nick...I hope that you are feeling better & the doctors find something that will help you to heal!

  3. Thanks for the funnies!!!!!

    And I gotta know... go you ever get asked to play Santa Claus?

  4. I was surprised to see that you put up another post today after your horrendous week and all of the comments you made on the doo-see-doo post. I enjoyed the laughs. Your jokes made a smiling end to my horrendous week. Thanks, Saintly Nick.

  5. Thanks for the laughs and I hope you feel better. Cheers Nick!!

  6. You know a lot of jokes for a man of the cloth. Did you get God's permission to copy His beard?

  7. ` I didn't think they were super, but I commend the effort. Don't feel bad; it's hard to find stuff that makes someone like ME laugh. EVERY WEEK!

  8. ` Oh, shoot. Maybe I'm just grumpy because I haven't gone to our new gym today, and because whenever I think about the new gym, I shake my fist at the girl whose accusations got us kicked out of the old one!

  9. This is you way, Rev Saint! When you are not feeling hale and hearty, you go out of your way to give laughs to others.

    Shalom to Alex and you, my dear friend.

  10. I may steal the one about the hybrid.

  11. LITTLE WING: Thank you. OK, I'll rub noses with the furball, but I won’t kiss him.

    TUG: Thank you. I am breathing much better today; however, I also feel exhausted. Perhaps last week’s trekking around the VA wore me out.

    PROFESSOR: You’re welcome. Actually, I’ve never been asked to play Santa Claus. That may be because I am Santa Claus.

    CHINA GIRL: You’re welcome. I’m glad those few bits of laughables helped with your horrendous week.

    DAFFY: Thank you! Creating it for me was a tonic for me!

  12. SQUIRL: You are most welcome!

    GORRILA BANANAS: Humor is an important part of life and spiritual growth. Many, if not most, of the parables that Jesus told were humorous in the context of his time and culture. Buddha seems to me to often be speaking with a smile on his face. My theology informs me that another name for God is “Love” and that Love loves to laugh.

    AKELAMALU: Thank you.

    S E E QUINE: Yes, Sara you do seem a bit grumpy today. Smile, child, smile!

    AZSONOFAGUN: You have me blushing, Rex!

    GRANNY: Steal all or any, with my blessings. I just post what other people have emailed me.

  13. I love this. The real meaning of Christmas is love and family, celebrating the birth of Jesus etc.

    All of these jokes are about Santa.

  14. I loved the joke about the Capitol's Nativity scene, fav joke.
