Merry Christmas! I hope you’ve enjoyed these Christmas Jokes.


  1. These are super cute, as are the knock knock ones! I teach Art workshops and I almost always read the kids a story too so I can weave these in as comedy relief.

  2. I’m so happy to find these! For the last 2 months, I’ve been sending little riddles in my 2nd grader’s lunch box. She is the snack time entertainment so she’ll be glad to get some Christmas themed riddles. Thanks for sharing them!

  3. We are doing a count down to Christmas with red and green popcycle sticks. After seeing this I wrote a joke on each one so everyday my daughter takes out a popcylce stick and reads a joke. She loves it.

  4. Pingback: CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN CHECKLIST TASKS 2DO #21 – The Organised Housewife
  5. Thanks for the jokes! I’m using these with a tear off snowman Christmas countdown for my kids. A joke of the day will help us remember to tear off a strip. I think they are going to love it!

  6. They are very helpful. I teach Spanish in middle school and I try to tell some jokes in Spanish–at least some words. Students look forward to this! I am preparing an activity with jokes for 6th graders, and I am using some of the jokes here. Thank you. One of my students´ favorites: “¿Qué dice la leche al azúcar?”– Te veo en el café.

    Feliz Navidad
