Updated: Funniest Lines From The Holidays

by Alex Iwashyna

in My Family, Social Life

We’re gathered around the yuletide computer watching NORAD the Santa tracker when I click on the video for Greece.

N: Why is Santa going there? That’s where they HATE SANTA.

Me: What? Oh no! The GRINCH hates Santa. Greece is a country. I think most of them like Santa.

N: Oh.


My daughter on Christmas

This is the face she makes when anything comes with more than two cats. This present had four.


N: Can I have an Oreo cookie?

My dad: Yes.

N: Can I have two?

My dad: Yes.

N: How about three?

My dad: Maybe we should ask your mom how high you can count.

I was tweeting with my friend @akaLaverne about how we aren’t letting work or to-do lists take over our vacations, and I wrote: I know. I’m going to set some strong intentions for 2913 about slowing down.

That’s probably the only timeline my husband would believe anyway.

Puppy with a donut

Puppy with a giant rubber donut. Heh.

Cat staring at stocking

Nugget longing for opposable thumbs to open his stocking

There are more, but I’m off to be family-ish. I’ll do a round-up post for the weekend though.

That face! I love it. Also, yes, you shall be very slow in 2913. Probably dead.

Ours came from Petit Prince who opened his rechargeable batteries (yes I know it’s a dorky present) and faltered before saying, “oh look! it’s a dangerous thing”).

And then he opened his massive tomy sketch pad (like etch-a-sketch) and said, “this is for little ones. I’m a medium.”

This is so funny. I keep typing I hope people have good luck in 3013. Sometimes good Karma has a really long turn around.

The Greeks have no idea how close they came to having Christmas cancelled this year!

Nugget is hilarious. One year, when I was a kid, my dog got on the table and ate the contents of my Easter basket. So sad and yet hilarious because that was the year that we discovered our dog chewed gum and never swallowed it.
