Friday's Top Ten

Top ten things Santa says:

10. Ho! Ho! Ho!

  9. Careful, boys, this roof's icy . . . uh, oh.

  8. That's the tiniest chimney I've ever seen.

  7. Rudolph!

  6. He wants WHAT?

  5. Whoa! Look at the size of that stocking.

  4. Why is everything always in the bottom of the bag?

  3. Milk and cookies, milk and cookies. Just once I'd like a beer and chips.

  2. Donner. Blitzen. Kick in the afterburners. Mrs. Claus is waiting!

And the #1 thing Santa says:

  1. Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.


Are the chimneys getting smaller, or is Santa getting bigger?

Love the top ten!

You know, I understand the everythings getting smaller aspect. My jeans get smaller just hanging in the closet. What's with that???

Best Regards, Galen.

Some Santa's are no longer allowed to say ho, ho, ho anymore. Apparently it is insulting and he now says ha, ha, ha.
Political correctness gone mad.

Always love your top 10. Thanks for the laugh, it's Friday and I needed that.

Elizabeth - I imagine Santa's getting a little rounder.

Galen - Let me know if you figure out how that happens.

Jane - You're welcome.

Cassandra - Agreed! We have a "Ho! Ho! Ho!" sign in our yard.

Mason - Thanks. I'm buried in paper and ribbon.

Your top 10 is always a pleasure to read. I'll remember to leave out beer and chips this year. :)

This is funny! David Letterman would be so jealous...

# 3 cracked me up! Always thought Santa was not a cookie guy.

I can relate to #4!

Merry Christmas to you!

Laura - Santa will be most appreciative. And thanks.

Marisa - Santa says milk and cookies have their place but not as a steady diet. Merry Christmas to you, too.

Very cute top ten. I bet he does get tired of cookies and milk. Maybe a cup of hot tea and scones - and save the beer for when he's finished his rounds. ;-)

It would be terrible if he lost track of time or mixed up gifts.

I can relate to, "Why is everything at the bottom of the bag." That, and the beer comment. Merry Christmas to all.

Yeah, Stephen, why is that? Maybe it's a sign to drink more beer?
