It is that time again, after putting up my christmas tree one week ago, i went to plug in the lights last night and nothing!!!!! Groan….now to find out which set of lights is bad and to take it off and restring the tree is not going to be fun….U think anyone wud notice if the tree doesnt light up????? The theme this year was red and green, yeah i know…boring…..the traditional christmas colours…..two years ago…i did purple and white…..that was cool……I guess i will get to work on fixing the lights this evening when i get home…..I promised myself that next year i am going to go with a all natural tree and get the fresh pine smell back into the house…..we will wait to see if that actually happens…..The tree is looking quite good though (although only one side of it is decorated) of course the side that is showing 🙂 anyway heres a little joke which i almost died laughing when i read it….to the start of the christmas season………..

“Three men died on Christmas Eve and were met at the pearly gates by St. Peter. “In honor of this holy season,” St. Peter said, ” If you want to get into heaven, you must each show me that you possess something that symbolizes Christmas.
” The first man fumbled though his pockets and pulled out a lighter and flicked it on. “This represents a candle”, he said. So St. Peter replied, “You may enter.”
The second man reached into his right pocket and pulled out a set of keys. He shook them and said, ” These represent bells.” So St. Peter said, “You also may enter.” Saint Peter said,” You may pass though the pearly gates.”
The third man was searching desperately though his pockets, to no avail. Then he finally pulled out a pair of women’s panties.
St. Peter looked at the man with a raised eyebrow and asked, “And just what do those symbolize?”

The man grinned and replied, “These are Carols.”
St. Peter fainted. And so the season begins . . . with a smile “

Hope u found that funny!!!!!!!!!!!!
