One year Jane was wrapping gifts so quickly, that she accidently wrapped two empty boxes. When one of our kids received two empty boxes on Christmas morning we all had a good laugh. In subsequent years it became a tradition each Christmas to wrap one empty box for someone in the family.
A boy begs his father to get him a Christmas tree this year.
Each year, the boy asks and the father tells him, "I don't
want to pay for it."
But the son kept begging. Unable to bear his son's whining,
he picks up his axe one day and heads out of the house.
Thirty minutes later he returns with a great big Christmas tree. "How did you cut it down so fast?" his son asks.
"I didn't cut it down," the father replies.
"I got it at a tree lot."
"Then why did you bring an axe?"
"Because I didn't want to pay."
A few days before Christmas, a man enters a pet store looking for a
unique gift for his wife. The store manager tells him he has just

He brings the husband over to a colorful but quiet bird. The man
agrees that Chet certainly is pretty, but he doesn't seem to be much
for singing. The manager tells him to watch as he reaches into his
pocket and pulls out a lighter. The manager then clicks the lighter
and holds it under Chet's left foot. Immediately Chet starts
singing; "Silent Night, Holy Night."
The husband is very impressed with Chet's singing abilities and
watches as the manager moves the lighter underneath Chet's right
foot. Chet now starts to sing "Jingle Bells, Jingle All the Way."
The husband says Chet is perfect and that he'll take him. The husband
rushes home to his wife and insists upon giving her this wonderful
gift immediately. He presents Chet and starts to explain the parrot's
Demonstrating, he holds a lighter under Chet's left foot and the
bird sings "Silent Night."
He then moves the lighter under the right foot and Chet lets loose a
round of "Jingle Bells."
The wife is absolutely impressed, and with a mischievous grin asks her
husband what happens if he holds the lighter between Chet's legs instead.
Curious the husband moves the lighter between the bird's legs, and
the bird begins to sing - "Chet's nuts Roasting on an Open Fire!"
