A prayer for Christmas
« on: November 27, 2015, 04:24:13 PM »
When I was 5, I prayed to God and asked him for a bike for Christmas.

But I didn't get a bike.

When I was 6, I prayed to God and asked him for a bike for Christmas.

But I didn't get a bike.

When I was 7, I realised that prayer doesn't work that way. So I stole a bike and prayed for forgiveness.

And I got a bike!

Apparently Emo Phillips was about to go on stage but couldn't because ''He felt a little funny''...........His manager told him to get on quick before it wore off.
I like the ''made up in the fourth century'' hypothesis but I also like Bart Ehrman. There's only one way to sort this out. Use contradictory evidence as it suits your argument wheeeeyyyyy!

That is short version of the original joke
We know we have to work together to abolish war and terrorism to create a compassionate  world in which Justice and peace prevail. Love ;D   Einstein

Dear Christmas Fairy,

The red sweetie boot is in its usual place on top of the china cabinet. Could you please ensure you don't magically put caramels in the sweetie boot this year, as my dentist has suggested I don't eat any as they have a disastrous effect on my fillings!

Thanks and AMEN! ;D

We have a Santa boot which is put out from December 1st. Our children, when they were young, and now our grandchildren look in the boot to check it is empty. Then they have to turn their backs to the boots and call, "Christmas Fairy" three times. When they turn around again they discover it contains a sweetie for each child. :D
