Subj: A Box of Kisses (S177, SS777)
From: RFSlick on 6/18/00
and From: Joke-of-the-Day.com on 4/16/2007
The story goes that some time
ago, a man punished his
3-year old daughter for wasting a roll of gold wrapping
paper. Money was tight and he became infuriated when
the child tried to decorate a box to put under the
Christmas tree. Nevertheless, the little girl brought
the gift to her father the next morning and said, "This
is for you, Daddy." He was embarrassed by his earlier
overreaction, but his anger flared again when he found
the box was empty. He yelled at her, "Don't you know
when you give someone a present, there's supposed to be
something inside it?"
The little girl looked up at
him with tears in her eyes
and said, "Oh Daddy, it's not empty. I blew kisses into
the box. All for you, Daddy." The father was crushed.
He put his arms around his little girl, and he begged
for her forgiveness.
An accident took the life of
the child only a short time
later and it is told that the man kept that gold box by
his bed for many years and whenever he was discouraged,
he would take out an imaginary kiss and remember the love
of the child who had put it there.
In a very real sense, each of
us as humans, have been
given a gold container filled with unconditional love
and kisses from our children, friends, family and God.
There is no more precious possession anyone could hold.

Subj: Lovable Louise (S150, S777)
From: KMacinty on 12/16/1999
and From: hilary.miller05 on 12/18/2011
As a joke, my brother used to
hang a pair of panty hose over
his fireplace before Christmas. He said all he wanted was for
Santa to fill them. What they say about Santa checking the
list twice must be true because every Christmas morning,
although Jay's kids' stockings were overflowed, his poor panty
hose hung sadly empty and grew increasingly threadbare.
One year I decided to make his
dream come true. I put on sun-
glasses and a fake beard and went in search of an inflatable
love doll. Of course, they don't sell those things at Walmart.
I had to go to an adult bookstore downtown. If you've never
been in an X-rated store, don't go. You'll only confuse your-
self. I was there almost three hours saying things like, "What
does this do?" "You're kidding me!" "Who owns that?" "Do you
have their phone number?"
Finally, I made it to the inflatable
doll section. I wanted to
buy a standard, uncomplicated doll suitable for a night of
romance that could also substitute as a passenger in my truck
so I could use the car pool lane during rush hour. I'm not sure
what a complicated doll is. Perhaps one that is subject to
wild mood shifts and using a French accent for no reason at all.
(That also describes a few ex-girlfriends.) Finding what I
wanted was difficult. Love dolls come in many different models.
The top of the line, according to the side of the box, could do
things I'd only seen in a book on animal husbandry. I figured
the "vibro-motion" was a feature Jay could live without, so I
settled for Lovable Louise. She was at the bottom of the price
scale. To call Louise a "doll" took a huge leap of imagination.
On Christmas Eve, with the help
of an old bicycle pump, Louise
came to life. My sister-in-law was in on the plan and cleverly
left the front door key hidden under the mat. In the wee morn-
ing hours, long after Santa had come and gone, I snuck into the
house and filled the dangling panty hose with Louise's pliant
legs and bottom. I also ate some cookies and drank what
remained of a glass of milk on a nearby tray. Then I let myself
out, went home, and giggled for a couple of hours.
The next morning my brother called
to say that Santa had been to
his house and left a present that had made him VERY happy but
had left the dog confused. He would bark, start to walk away,
then come back and bark some more. I suggested he purchase an
inflatable Lassie to set Rover straight. We also agreed that
Louise should remain in her panty hose so the rest of the family
could admire her when they came over for the traditional
Christmas dinner. It seemed like a great idea, except that we
forgot that Grandma and Grandpa would be there.
My grandmother noticed Louise
the moment she walked in the door.
"What the hell is that?" she asked.
My brother quickly explained. "It's a doll."
"Who would play with something
like that?" Granny snapped. I
had several candidates in mind, but kept my mouth shut. "Where
are her clothes?" Granny continued. I hadn't seen any in the
box, but I kept this information to myself. "Boy, that turkey
sure smells nice, Gran," Jay said, trying to steer her into
the dining room. But Granny was relentless.
"Why doesn't she have any teeth?"
Again, I could have answered,
but why would I? It was Christmas and no one wanted to ride in
the back of the ambulance saying, "Hang on Granny, Hang on!"
My grandfather, a delightful
old man with poor eyesight, sidled
up to me and said," Hey, who's the naked gal by the fireplace?"
I told him she was Jay's friend. A few minutes later I noticed
Grandpa by the mantel, talking to Louise. Not just talking, but
actually flirting. It was then that we realized this might be
Grandpa's last Christmas at home.
The dinner went well. We
made the usual small talk about who
had died, who was dying, and who should be killed, when suddenly
Louise made a noise that sounded a lot like my father in the
bathroom in the morning. The she lurched from the panty hose,
flew around the room twice, and fell in a heap in front of the
The cat screamed, I passed
cranberry sauce through my nose,
and Grandpa ran across the room, fell to his knees, and began
administering mouth to mouth resuscitation. My brother wet his
pants and Granny threw down her napkin, stomped out of the
room, and sat in the car. It was indeed a Christmas to
treasure and remember.
Later in my brother's garage,
we conducted a thorough examin-
ation to decide the cause of Louise's collapse. We discovered
that Louise had suffered from a hot ember to the back of her
right thigh. Fortunately, thanks to a wonder drug called duct
tape, we restored her to perfect health. Louise went on to
star in several bachelor party movies. I think Grandpa still
calls her whenever he can get out of the house.

Subj: The Story Of Rudolph (S462)
From: igiggle on 12/1/2005
In 1939, Robert May, a copywriter
for Montgomery Ward, was
asked to write a Christmas poem for the holiday season. May
come up with one he called "Rollo the Red-Nosed Reindeer."
Executives of the company liked the story, but didn't like
the name Rollo. So May renamed the reindeer Reginald - the
only name he could think of that preserved the poem's rhythm.
Montgomery Ward rejected that name, too. Try as he might,
May couldn't come up with another name that fit - until his
four-year-old daughter suggested Rudolph.
The poem was a huge success.
Montgomery Ward published a
little book out of it and sold some two and a half million
copies that season. Ten years later, the popular story about
the misfit reindeer was set to music by Robert May's brother-
in-law, songwriter Johnny Marks. When the song was recorded
by singing cowboy Gene Autry, "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer"
(betcha can hear it now) became the second-best-selling
Christmas single in history - after "White Christmas."
But that's just the beginning
of the little reindeer's
popularity. Most of us have seen - on a yearly basis perhaps
- the classic Animagic special, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,
which aired for the first time in 1964 on the General Electric
Fantasy Hour. In the show, Yukon Cornelius, Hermey the Elf,
and the misfit toys all help Rudolph save Christmas. Narrated
by Burl Ives, the TV special has been watched by an estimated
100 million families over the years. Today the show, and
Rudolph, are permanently established in the Christmas tradition.

Subj: Christmas Mistake (S303, DU)
From: mombear1 on 11/22/2002
Each December, I vowed to make
Christmas a calm and peaceful
experience. I had cut back on nonessential obligations -
extensive card writing, endless baking, decorating, and even
overspending. Yet still, I found myself exhausted, unable
to appreciate the precious family moments, and of course,
the true meaning of Christmas.
My son, Nicholas, was in kindergarten
that year. It was an
exciting season for a six year old. For weeks, he'd been
memorizing songs for his school's "Winter Pageant." I did
not have the heart to tell him I'd be working the night of
the production. Unwilling to miss his shining moment, I
spoke with his teacher. She assured me there'd be a dress
rehearsal the morning of the presentation. All parents
unable to attend that evening were welcome to come then.
Fortunately, Nicholas seemed happy with the compromise.
So, the morning of the dress
rehearsal, I filed in ten
minutes early, found a spot on the cafeteria floor and sat
down. Around the room, I saw several other parents quietly
scampering to their seats. As I waited, the students were
led into the room. Each class, accompanied by their
teacher, sat cross-legged on the floor. Then, each group,
one by one, rose to perform their song. Because the public
school system had long stopped referring to the holiday as
"Christmas," I didn't expect anything other than fun,
commercial entertainment - songs of reindeer, Santa Claus,
snowflakes and good cheer.
So, when my son's class rose
to sing, "Christmas Love," I
was slightly taken aback by its bold title. Nicholas was
aglow, as were all of his classmates, adorned in fuzzy
mittens, red sweaters, and bright snowcaps upon their
heads. Those in the front row- center stage - held up
large letters, one by one, to spell out the title of the
song. As the class would sing "C is for Christmas," a
child would hold up the letter C. Then, "H is for Happy,"
and on and on, until each child holding up his portion
had presented the complete message, "Christmas Love."
The performance was going smoothly,
until suddenly, we
noticed her; a small, quiet, girl in the front row holding
the letter "M" upside down - totally unaware her letter
"M" appeared as a "W". The audience of 1st through 6th
graders snickered at this little one's mistake. But she
had no idea they were laughing at her, so she stood tall,
proudly holding her "W". Although many teachers tried to
shush the children, the laughter continued until the last
letter was raised, and we all saw it together. A hush
came over the audience and eyes began to widen. In that
instant, we understood - the reason we were there, why we
celebrated the holiday in the first place, why even in the
chaos, there was a purpose for our festivities. For when
the last letter was held high, the message read loud and
And, I believe, He still is.

As Christmas Day fast approaches,
we are entering that
part of the annual rush called "Guy Christmas" (aka
"Christmas Eve"). It is that portion of the shopping
season in which Real Guys get ready for the holiday.
This process has three phases:
Making lists: For Real Guys (and
you know who you are), the
list-making process involves waking up on Christmas Eve
morning, mentally surveying the number of people needing
gifts, and being overcome by the realization of just how
much trouble they are going to be in if they don't buy them
Buying gifts: At this point,
Guys get dressed and go to a
store. Or possibly two stores, but in that case, one of
them always sells hardware.
If the Guy is buying for a significant
female, he will stop
by the lingerie or perfume counters and make a selection.
However, he will never, ever stop by the makeup counter.
There are limits.
If he is buying for a child,
he will go to the toy
department and buy something he would like to play with
Then he will go to the hardware
department and do the same
Wrapping gifts: Now it is Crunch
Time. If our Guys have
exercised a due amount of care and judgment, it is still
before 10 a.m. That means they have all day to wrap them.
The wrapping process is composed
of two parts - Procras-
tination and Desperation. Part One involves leaving the
presents in the trunk and watching whatever games are on
the tube today.
Part Two occurs when the last
game ends, and the "uh-oh"
process commences. Our Guy locates the wrapping paper,
ribbon and tape by the simple expedient of asking the
nearest female where she keeps them. Then he discards the
ribbon, wraps the gifts using no more than three times the
amount of paper the female would have used, and proudly
places them under the tree.
At this point, if our Guy is
a father, the All-Night Complex-
Toy Assembly Phase begins. But that's another story.

Subj: Kid Gets Bike For Christmas (S03, S829)
From: Tom_Adams on 98-11-04
On Christmas morning a cop on
horseback is sitting at a
traffic light, and next to him is a kid on his shiny new
bike. The cop says to the kid, Nice bike you got there.
Did Santa bring that to you?" The kid says, "Yeah."
The cop says, "Well, next year
tell Santa to put a tail-
light on that bike." The cop then proceeds to issue the
kid a $20.00 bicycle safety violation ticket.
The kid takes the ticket and
before he rides off says,
"By the way, that's a nice horse you got there. Did
Santa bring that to you?" Humoring the kid, the cop
says, "Yeah, he sure did."
The kid says, "Well, next year
tell Santa to put the dick
underneath the horse, instead of on top."
