50 Times People Greeted Christmas With A Sense Of Humor
When you think of it, the Christmas holiday is really the perfect time to crack a joke or two, or go on a full-on week-long comedy bender. Everyone, yourself included, is kinda in a good mood, so the chances of offending someone are at yearly lows (unless you step into politics or decide to school the anti-Covid-vaxers, of course). After all, it’s all about having fun, and fun is in the eye of the beholder, right?
So this time, Bored Panda compiled a festive list of people having the time of their lives thanks to a smashing sense of humor, overall good spirits, and a dash of absurdity, which is always a big part of Christmas.

Chances are we will be remembering the Christmas holidays: 2020 edition forever. One of the most awaited celebrations of the year has undergone a dramatic shift due to the coronavirus pandemic, with many staying behind closed doors, opting for virtual conversations with friends and family.
On the other hand, living in the times of the greatest public health crisis in modern history may feel like a perfect time to cut back on holiday-related excesses, like mindless shopping and overabundance of food. According to The Atlantic, “people often identify holiday profligacy as a modern problem, hastened by malls and chain stores and online shopping.”
But it turns out that the history of indulgent celebrations is as old as the history of civilization itself. For example, the ancient Roman holiday of Saturnalia, a days-long December feast, was already criticized for being too materialistic at the time.

Celebrating Christmas With My Wife’s Family, When Suddenly
These days, Christmas has become a part of our personal and cultural identities that go hand in hand with the capitalist modus operandi. Dell deChant, a religion professor at the University of South Florida, told The Atlantic that in that sense, Christmas is a great normalizing experience. “If we’re not able to consume, then, to a certain extent, we’re marginalized—within the culture, as well as in our own minds.”
But if other years, indulging in the gifts galore and holiday sales shopping was part of the whole experience, this year may be an excellent opportunity to rethink our priorities and turn to what’s really important. After all, an endless sea of discounted candy or perfumed soap isn’t going to make us any happier, but a call to a family member will.
