For Christians, the birth of Jesus Christ has a deep spiritual significance, but that does not mean to say that we don’t enjoy jokes at Christmas:
Did you hear about the St Michael’s School nativity play? Two children were dressed as Mary and Joseph, and making their way to the inn at Bethlehem. Meanwhile on the other side of the stage, a lad in a shepherd’s outfit was on a mobile phone calling the inn to make a reservation.
It was the Sunday after Christmas at Mulliken United Methodist Church in Mulliken, Michigan. The Pastor was looking getting ready to pack away the nativity scene figures when he noticed the baby Jesus was missing from the scene. Immediately, Pastor Vaughn turned towards his phone in order to call the police. But as he was about to do so, he saw little Harry with a red wagon. And in the wagon was the little infant Jesus figure. Pastor Vaughn walked up to Harry and said, ‘Well, Harry, where did you get the little infant Jesus?’ Harry replied honestly, ‘I took him from the church, Pastor.’ ‘And why did you take him?’ With a sheepish smile, Harry said, ‘Well, about a week before Christmas I prayed to little Lord Jesus. I told him if he would bring me a red wagon for Christmas, I would give him a ride around the block in it.’
Young Andrew was watching his father, a Vicar, write a sermon for the Christmas service. ‘How do you know what to say?’ Andrew asked. ‘Why, God tells me’, the father replied. ‘Oh, then why do you keep crossing things out?’
