Sidesplitting jokes, puns, and puzzles are unleashed in this festive collection of quips for all of the major U.S. holidays. Each celebrated day from New Year's to Christmas is afforded a separate chapter, organized in calendar order. Class clowns and junior high school comedians will uncover a bevy of vocabulary-enhancing humor and wholesome witticisms, such as Where was the Declaration of Independence signed? At the bottom. Enhanced by lively illustrations, each section also offers fun and fascinating origin stories and customs, making this a mirthful introduction to understanding modern-day celebrations.
