Overheard While Decorating the Tree

How can ya help but be in the Christmas spirit with comments like these?

1. Do I have to?
2. I hate trees in houses.
3. What's a pine tree got to do with Baby Jesus?
4. This is stupid.
5. Are we done yet?
6. Why on earth would you hang this ugly thing I made in 2nd grade?
7. That's MY ornament! Gimme it!
8. Who gets to hide the pickle? (ok, it's not as suggestive as you think.....Pennsylvania Germans hide a pickle ornament on the tree)
9. Do you want a tin icicle shoved up your nose?
10. We need more balls.


  • LOL!! The joys of the holiday season!!

    We heard #7 a lot - mostly from me - I have many fragile, collectable ornaments that are MINE!! Mwuhahaha!!

    And, "Mommmmy, Jessie broke the tree again!"

  • That's awesome. You must have preteens or teenagers for the comments "Do we have to" "I think this is stupid" and I'll shove the icicle up your nose comment.

    I imagine they'll look back with fondness on these Christmas decorating days, even if right now they're convinced they're doing it against their will.

  • I can picture that happening in my home years ago.
    "What is that light doing in your nose? Yeah, uh, it's real cool that you can see the light shining through your nostril."
    Thanks for giving me a good laugh, I needed it.
