Funny Christmas Stories
On Christmas Eve, Nathan thought it would be nice to buy his wife a little gift for the next day. Always short of money, he thought long and hard about what that present might be'
Unable to decide, Nathan entered Debenhams and in the cosmetics section he asked the girl, 'How about some perfume?' She showed him a bottle costing £75. [$150USD]
'Too expensive,' muttered Nathan.
The young lady returned with a smaller bottle for £50. 'Oh dear,' Nathan groused, 'still far too much.'
Growing rather annoyed at Nathan's meanness, the sales girl brought out a tiny £10 bottle and offered it to him.
Nathan became really agitated, 'What I mean', he whined, 'is I'd like to see something really cheap.'
So the sales girl handed him a mirror.
Christmas Queue Folly
Just before Christmas I was shopping at a toy fayre in Nottingham'
I glanced to my left and caught sight of a queue at the doll counter; they were waiting for the shelves to be restocked with Mattel dolls. As I looked I realised that in the queue was a good friend of mine. Knowing Ernie well I was sure that he had no daughters nor did he have any nieces so I wondered why he should want to buy a doll at Christmas time'
'Hey, Ernie,' I cried, 'I hadn't realised you collected dolls.'
'I don't,' he replied laughing'
'Really,' I queried, 'then you must be buying a Christmas present then?'
'No, not at all, my friend,' responded Ernie, his eyes twinkling merrily'
'If you don't mind my asking then Ernie,' I said, 'Why exactly are you standing in this particular queue?'
'Oh that,' he giggled. 'It's like this, my mate,' he mused, 'I've never been able to resist a Barbie queue.'

Grandpa's Christmas Story
Grandpa decided that shopping for Christmas presents had become too difficult. All his grandchildren had everything they needed, so he decided to send them each a cheque (checks).
On each card he wrote:
'Happy Christmas Grandpa'
P.S. 'Buy your own present!'
While Grandpa enjoyed the family festivities, he thought that his grandchildren were just slightly distant. It preyed on his mind into the New Year. Then, one day, he was sorting out his study and under a pile of magazines; he found a little pile of checks for his grandchildren. He had completely forgotten to put them in with the Christmas cards.
