Talking Christmas Jokes Thread

Christmas is fast approaching, so I decided to have a jokes thread specially dedicated to Christmas-related jokes.

Good idea or bad idea?

Mods: If "good idea" becomes the prevailing opinion, would you be kind enough as to delete non-Christmas related jokes and close this thread from 6th Jan onwards?

I know someone is going to mention that for the Eastern Orthodox Church, Christmas is on 6th January, but frankly I don't want to worry about that.

To start with a classic:

Why does Santa have three gardens?

So he can hoe hoe hoe!

I've used this as a sig in the past. It led to a rather nasty e-mail from a born again Christian.

"But God really exists" said the old man and my faith was restored for I knew that Santa would never lie.

Why doesn't Santa have any children?

Because he only comes once a year, and then it's down a chimney.

Curry's paradox: If this sentence is true, Santa exists.

That was completely unintended. The word "hoe" is meant to have its usual meaning.

The preferred spelling for the derogatory term is just "ho", so technically Santa would be the sexist one.

Santa is sexist - he never lets his wife do his job.
