Hi, Dirk. Thank you so much for hosting me on your blog today.
Toby, one of the main characters in my new Christmas novella, For want of a Christmas Miracle, available now from NineStar Press, has a love of cheesy Christmas cracker jokes—you know the kind that a five year old can’t tell you without giggling ridiculously? Toby is that boss who shouldn’t really exist; a genuinely nice bloke. He likes to make people comfortable, and silly jokes are one of his tactics. So, in honour of Toby, I thought for this post I could share some of the best (worst?) cracker jokes I’ve found. Try to get through them without groaning, I dare you.
What do they sing at the snowman’s birthday party?
Freeze a Jolly Good Fellow…
Christmas trees are notoriously bad at sewing… they’re always dropping their needles.
What do you get if you eat Christmas decorations?
Pretty lame, huh? So what about those jokes that are more for the office Christmas party than the dinner table?
Why do you always see Santa on the roof?
Because he prefers it on top!
Why are Santa’s chances of having kids limited?
Because he only comes once a year!
Why was the snowman smiling?
He could see the snow blower coming!
Yeah, they’re not much better, really! Bet you smiled though… nope? Just me then! What’s your favourite seasonal joke?
I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season and that you enjoy reading about Rhys and Toby’s Christmas miracle as much as I enjoyed writing it.

When one down-on-his-luck gardener and one garden centre owner meet, neither could predict the attraction they’d feel towards each other. Toby is just about turning round the business he’d inherited from his dad, and it’s all going well—until a risk he took looks like it might not pay off. Rhys’s employment at Toby’s garden centre is temporary, just to cover the Christmas sales, and frankly he’d much rather be outside gardening. And avoiding Christmas.
When an accident means Toby can’t be at work at a crucial time, it’s time for Rhys to step up to the mark. But can the Christmas Scrooge make the difference required for the man he’s starting to love?
