Christmas cupcakes

These are some delicious looking cupcakes, but they would probably make for great button designs too.

We sincerely hope you’ve had the chance to indulge in all of your consumer fantasies and spend every last cent in your savings account this holiday season. Isn’t that what holiday spirit is all about? No? Well, you could have fooled me!

Granted, Christmas isn’t everybody’s favorite time of year, and it seems as though there has been a lot of cynicism about it as of late. On the other hand, some freaks people absolutely love it and even plan for it months in advance of it ever happening. For example, light shows have gone beyond house decoration in recent years. Entire parks are now lit up and synchronized to a variety of songs.

One thing most people can agree on is presents. I hope my family has been reading my posts; otherwise I’m going to end up with a year’s supply of socks (yes, 365 pairs!) all over again. Trust me, I don’t need any more! And what’s with this “give to charity” crap? Give me my band merch!

Anyway, here are some fun sayings you can put on custom buttons to help spread holiday resentment cheer. You could give them to your family and friends or even circulate them around the office. That mostly depends on how evil you are.

I Once Bought My Kids A Set Of Batteries For Christmas With A Note On It Saying, ‘Toys Not Included’

Here’s a funny by Bernard Manning.

Parents like to play tricks on their kids for Christmas. I am no exception. I once got a pair of speakers for Christams with no stereo system in sight. As it turns out, the stereo was upstairs, but I put those speakers through the window before I realized this. Oops. Careful what tricks you play on your kids, parents.

Christmas Is The One Time Of Year When People Of All Religions Come Together To Worship Jesus Christ

Merry Christmas And Happy New Year!

Of course, we need a few classics in here just to pad it out pay proper homage to the season. No, I don’t have a source for this one. Don’t be such a perfectionist.

God Bless Us, Everyone!
