What is Christmas?

 

 

 

 

 
 

& IRAQ

 

The word Christmas comes from the words Cristes maesse, or "Christ’s Mass." Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Jesus for members of the Christian religion. Most historians peg the first celebration of Christmas to Rome in 336 A.D.

 

Christmas is both a holiday and a holy day. In America it is one of the biggest event of the year (especially for kids), and for members of the Christian religions it is an important day on the religious calendar.

arrived on time,

cleaned the stable,
made a casserole,

"Something for my mother, " said the young lady.

"Bring for your mother? Well, that’s wha call thoughtful,”
smiled Santa. "What can I get her?"

After thinking for a moment, the girl brightened,
turned to Santa and said:

Reindeer Bar
One evening, in a busy lounge in the deep south, a reindeer walked in the door,
bellied up to the bar and ordered a martini. Without batting an eye, the bartender

mixed and poured the drink, set it in front of the reindeer, and accepted the
twenty-dollar bill from the reindeer’s hoof.

As he handed the reindeer some coins in change, he said, "You know, I think you’re the
first reindeer I’ve ever seen in here."

The reindeer looked hard at the hoofful of change and said, "Hmmmpf. Let me tell you
something, buddy. At these prices, I’m the last reindeer you’ll see in here."

An older woman was cruising a busy parking lot just before Christmas in her new
Mercedes-Benz looking in vain for a parking space. She finally saw someone
loaded with packages heading for a car, so she followed him, put on her blinker
and waited patiently until he pulled out. Just as he pulled out a young man in a sleek
black Porsche zipped in to the space ahead of her. She was dumbfounded and
outraged, and jumped out of her car, shouting,

"How could you do that? Didn’t you see me waiting there with my signal on?" to
which he replied, "That’s what happens when you’re young and fast."

As the young man was about to enter the store he heard the hideous crunch of
metal striking metal. He ran back, horrified, to see that the woman had gunned her
Mercedes and smashed it into his beautiful black Porsche. He ran back and cried,
"How could you do that?" to which she replied,
 

"That’s what happens when you’re old and rich!"

There once was a czar in Russia whose name was Rudolph the Great. He was standing in his
house one day with his wife.
He looked out the window and saw something happening.
 He says
to his wife,"Look honey. Its raining." She, being the obstinate type, responded,"I don’t
think so, dear. I think its snowing." But Rudolph knew better. So he says to his wife,
"Let’s step outside and we’ll find out." Lo and behold, they step outside and discover it
was in fact rain. And Rudolph turns to his wife and replies," I knew it was raining.
Rudolph the Red knows rain, dear!"

It was Christmas and the judge was in a merry mood as he asked the prisoner,
"What are you charged with?"

"Doing my Christmas shopping early", replied the defendant.

"That’s no offence", said the judge. "How early were you doing this shopping?"

"Before the store opened", countered the prisoner.
