Since I don’t have a super-cool holiday tale of my own to share, I turn to awesome people like Jen of People I Want to Punch in the Throat for belly-rolling laughs. I’m thrilled to spread some holiday cheer and join some amazing bloggers to share her fantastic new book today, which you’ll read all about below. Did I mention a bunch of copies of the book are being given away and a Kindle Fire?! And if you aren’t one of the lucky winners, grab your own copy here.
The best personal holiday funny I can offer you is a true confession that I am Christmas-tree challenged. What does this mean, you ask? While one of the most fun delights in this world for me is cozying up by the beautifully lit Christmas tree, chances are, if I get within 10 feet of one, something might go wrong. Very wrong.
There was the year that my family’s tree fell over in it’s entirety on Christmas Eve. Late on Christmas Eve, and it required complete redecoration. Oh what fun.
One Christmas my dog ate the tree. This doesn’t sound possible, does it? It is. The first year my husband and I were married, we had made handmade gingerbread man ornaments. Several years later, enter our psychotic chocolate lab and an evening that both my husband and I had to work. Not only had the dear poochie scarfed all of the aged gingerbread men, but most of the tree as well. He was furious with us for at least a week as all of that Christmas festivity ripped through his little canine digestive system.
Years ago we were living in a second floor apartment and discovered an hour before our hosting our large annual Christmas party that our new plastic tree stand had sprung a leak and soaked through the floor boards. Not to mention destroying all of the wrapped Christmas presents underneath the tree.
And I probably should mention the time I accidentally lost my wedding ring in the Christmas tree (let’s not get into how this happened) and we had to spend the afternoon undecorating the tree just to try and find the ring. My husband might still be a little miffy over this.
Anyway, the bottom line is–it may just be best to keep me away from Christmas trees, and it’s probably high time to turn this over to some discussion of some real holiday humor…
Nineteen of your favorite mom humor bloggers had a meeting and we all agreed. There’s a brand new book that we think you NEED to read this holiday season. The title says it all.
