100+ Jolly Good Christmas Jokes for Kids

With Christmas Day fast approaching, I’ve been searching for funny Christmas jokes to ‘crack’ at Christmas lunch on Friday.

My obsession for lame ‘dad jokes’ (or, as we call them in our family, ‘mum jokes), is legendary, so of course I took this ‘finding cool Christmas jokes challenge’ very, very seriously. I’ve spent the last day and a half researching the most hilarious, kid-friendly, Christmas-related jokes, knock knock jokes and one liners around. *Spending my time wisely, grin*.

Here are the 108 jokes that I liked best. Sorry, I couldn’t cut any of these out, they’re all terrible and awesome! I promise all (or at least most) of these jokes will make you snort, laugh out loud, and roll your eyes – at the same time!

These Christmas jokes would be perfect to pop inside your DIY Christmas crackers (if you are so inclined), or you could use them to make your own funny Christmas cards (or even just write cool jokes inside your store-bought Christmas cards). If you’re planning ahead, next year you could print them out to add to a DIY advent calender, or pop one each day in the kids’ lunchboxes. (See below for a printable version). Or you could just read, chuckle along, and hopefully memorise a few, so can crack some (terribly funny) jokes at your Christmas day lunch (or virtual lunch this year perhaps?).

Merry Christmas everyone!
