Ho? Ho? Ho? 25 best dad jokes for the holidays

Dad jokes and memes brighten everyone’s day on Facebook. Reposted by Mimi Wetherell/Lariat

Dad jokes are known for being punny, corny and sometimes even humorous.  They are in a genre all to themselves. Hearing them from someone in any situation may make you cringe at the inane punchline, groan or laugh out loud at the ridiculousness. Regardless, as we approach the end of 2020— thank goodness— and anticipate the festivities of this season, it is evident that a good laugh goes a long way in alleviating some of the stress of the holidays.

Here is a list of my top 25 dad jokes from Bored Panda— one for each day of December till Christmas:
