Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays! Happy Festivus!

Are you ready? Are you excited? I am both!

How to cats greet each other at Christmas time?

About Santa, some children call him Santa Caus since there is Noel.

I have a friend who is offended by any greeting this time of year except Merry Christmas. I try to remember to use that with her, but I often say Happy Holidays and I do so without meaning to offend anyone. I have never been offended by any greeting that was given warmly or with good cheer, and would hope most people feel the same way. I'm not concerned with political correctness, most often I am thinking Merry Christmas and Happy New Year when I say Happy Holidays. Also, I like alliteration.  The street where I live begins with an H. Years ago our neighbor party that takes place in December was dubbed H**** (name of our street) Holiday Happening. Does a love of puns and alliteration go hand in hand? For me it does, because words are fun.

What does December have that other months don't have?
The letter D.

What is the difference between the Christmas alphabet and the regular alphabet?
The Christmas alphabet has no L.

I can't wait to write about one of the gifts that I made and show the photos. I hope it won't sound boastful, that isn't how I feel. It is about excitement. I had so much fun making a few gifts this year and I hope the recipients feel the fun and love that hopefully were built into them.

What do Christmas trees and bad knitters have in common?
They both drop their needles.

What does a reindeer say before telling a joke?
This one will sleigh you!

My hope for everyone this holiday season and beyond is that you feel loved. May we all give, receive and witness acts of kindness, be they as simple as a smile. May we remember that there is more good in the world than bad, despite media coverage. And lastly, may none of your gifts need to be exchanged!

Why does Scrooge love reindeer?
Because every buck is deer to him.

What did the bald man say when he got a comb for Christmas?
Thanks, I'll never part with it!

What did the salt say to the pepper?
Season's Greetings.

Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays!
