Christmas Jokes and Riddles All Around..
Christmas will not be fun and festive without the family gathering around and sharing jokes and riddles. There is always one member of the family that either cracks a joke or is the source of laughter.
Since it is the holidays, the most appropriate jokes would have to be Christmas-related.
Whether or not they are humorous, however, will depend on several things.
According to a study led by Robert Dunbar at London’s Oxford University, some of the funniest jokes involve 2 characters and up to 5 levels of intentionality running back and forth between the comedian and the audience. Any more than that and people will easily lose the plot.
Intentionality refers to the ability to understand a person’s intentions that are often unspoken.
The everyday conversational jokes, however, do not involve as many intentional levels.
But if they tickle your funny bone, who cares?
Below is a list of Christmas jokes and riddles from around the world.
