Funny Christmas Sayings and Quotes - Humor for the Season

Do you wish to inject some humor with funny Christmas sayings and quotes?

Christmas is probably one of the most anticipated holidays of the year. It is a time for family and friends to gather, exchange gifts and celebrate the true meaning of Christmas.

While Christmas is a solemn occasion, it is also a time of joy and laughter. Celebrities are often asked for their opinions on the holiday. Many people search for just the right saying to describe how they feel during the holiday season. Here are some funny Christmas sayings by a number of celebrated individuals throughout the decades that are guaranteed to put a smile on your face and those of the people you share them with.

Humorist Dave Barry remarked about Christmas, "Once again we find ourselves enmeshed in the Holiday Season, that very special time of year when we join with our loved ones in sharing centuries-old traditions such as trying to find a parking space at the mall. We traditionally do this in my family by driving around the parking lot until we see a shopper emerge from the mall, then we follow her, in very much the same spirit as the Three Wise Men, who 2,000 years ago followed a star, week after week, until it led them to a parking space."

Dave Barry was also quoted as saying this about the holiday season, "In the old days, it was not called the Holiday Season; the Christians called it 'Christmas' and went to church; the Jews called it 'Hanukkah' and went to synagogue; the atheists went to parties and drank. People passing each other on the street would say 'Merry Christmas!' or 'Happy Hanukkah!' or (to the atheists) 'Look out for the wall!'"

Comedians often use the holiday in order to enhance their acts during the Christmas season. For example, Jay Leno was quoted as saying this about the nativity, "The Supreme Court has ruled that they cannot have a nativity scene in Washington, D.C. This wasn't for any religious reasons. They couldn't find three wise men and a virgin."

When thinking of the tradition of giving gifts at Christmas, there are several funny Christmas sayings and quotes that deal with this part of the holiday season. For example, "Christmas is a race to see which gives out first - your money or your feet," (Anonymous). Or this funny Christmas quote by Bernard Manning, "I once bought my kids a set of batteries for Christmas with a note on it saying, toys not included."

Another funny Christmas saying deals with the costs involved in buying the perfect gifts for your loved ones, "Many banks have a new kind of Christmas club in operation. The new club helps you save money to pay for last year's gifts," (Anonymous). Another funny Christmas saying about the costs of Christmas is this one by P. J. O'Rourke, "Christmas begins about the first of December with an office party and ends when you finally realize what you spent, around April fifteenth of the next year."

While Christmas is a very solemn time of year, it is always a good idea to find the lighter side of life. With these funny Christmas sayings, you can add a little laughter and humor to someone's day.
