“A whole workshop full of presents and Mrs. Claus wants jewelry from Tiffany’s.” (83)

“The elf who laundered these gloves will be spending next year in the unemployment line.” (89)

“Why are we sitting behind a car stuck in neutral? Have you forgotten how to fly?” (83)

You think you get stressed during the holidays? Just be glad you don’t have Santa’s job! Don’t worry. He sounds a bit grumpy right now, but I’m sure he’ll much more cheerful, when he’s finished his deliveries!

Wishing you and yours much joy during this holiday season and throughout the coming year.

    With the kind of deliveries within one night Santa is entitled to be grumpy. Merry Christmas and Happy hols Grandma! Thanks for all the MFs the whole of this year though I missed quite some few!

    SC does look a bit put out with his wife’s wish for Christmas–the way he has his arms up in the air!

    I thought those white gloves looked a little funky, too. I thought Santa wore black leather gloves.

    I had Santa forgetting his reindeer and that’s why he was stuck in traffic.

    A great triple play, Grandma! Thank you for hosting this site…it’s such fun. Did you get my silly photos from our tour of Israel? E.g., Arab guy playing bagpipes in ancient ruins? Oops, did I give too much away?
