“What do you call a polar bear wearing earmuffs? – Anything you like, it can’t hear you!”
This weekend the photo challenge on our other site Weekly Prompts is ‘Traditions‘. GC and I asked our readers to share some of their favourite Christmas traditions.
A tradition here in the U.K. and definitely a favourite in our house is the Christmas Cracker. There’s something quite special about Crackers. For starters, we get to wear colourful paper crowns, now that’s not an everyday occurrence.
Christmas Day, serving up has begun, and some of our crackers have already been pulled.
This year our numbers were down, there were only fourteen of us, it was the turn of other in-laws to entertain some of our number. This meant Evie was the youngest child to grace our table, and I think you might agree that in this beautiful dress she was the Belle of our ball!
Back to those Christmas Crackers – There’s a little surprise inside, usually some plastic toy, but if you’re lucky you might find a tiny screwdriver. Now they’re always my favourite, so very useful.
And let’s not forget those little jokes, there’s always a bountiful supply of corny ones guaranteed to bring forth the groans, and then… we get to read them out, such fun!
Here’s a selection from this year.
1. What did Cinderella say when the chemist lost her photographs? – Someday my prints will come!
2. What did the sea say to the sand? – Nothing it just waved!
3. What does a frog do when his car breaks down? – He gets it toad away!
4. What part of a clock is always old? – The second hand!
5. What bee can never be understood? – A mumble-bee!
6. What do you get when you cross a skeleton with a detective? – Sherlock Bones!
7. Why is a horse like a cricket match? – because they get stopped by the rein!
Cringeworthy eh, but good fun at the dinner table.
