As usual, YouTube is dominated by videos from people who think they are funny but don’t really measure up. So I turned to the pros. Stephen Colbert offers his viewpoint on the “holiday tree” erected in Washington state’s Capitol.

In addition, for kids and those of us who don’t mind simple humor, I’ve included a few Christmas riddles:

Crisp Kringle

What do you have in December that’s not in any other month?
The letter “D”

Where do snowmen go to dance?

What do you call an old snowman?

Did Rudolph go to a regular school?
No, he was “elf”-taught

What do you get when you cross a snowman with a vampire?

Why was Santa’s little helper depressed?

Why does Scrooge love all of the reindeer?

What do you call Santa when he has no money?

What do you sing at a snowman’s birthday party?
Freeze a jolly good fellow!

What happened when the snowgirl broke up with the snowboy ?
