Christmas Twists

 1. Eliza asked her Sunday School class to sketch a picture of their favourite Bible stories. She was puzzled by Tommy’s picture which showed four people sitting in a plane, so she asked him which bible story it was meant to represent. “The flight to Egypt” said Tommy. “I see … and that must be Mary, Joseph, and baby Jesus,” Eliza said, “But who’s the fourth person?” “Oh, that’s Pontius – the Pilot.”

2. A man visited the vicarage on Christmas Eve and asked to see the vicar’s wife, who was well known for her charity.  As he spoke to her he said in a voice breaking with emotion, “I’d like to draw your attention to the terrible plight of a poor family in this district. The father is dead, the mother is too ill to work, and the nine children are starving. They are about to be turned out into the cold streets unless someone pays their £1000 rent arrears before Christmas.”
“How frightful!’ exclaimed the vicar’s wife. ‘May I ask who you are?” The visitor wiped his eyes with his handkerchief and wailed, “I’m their landlord.”
