Mary Christmas


Don’t bother making jokes. This family has heard them all. No, they don’t communicate directly with Santa Claus. They don’t celebrate the holidays year-round, and they certainly have some not-so-cheerful days. The smirks and the wisecracks are just part of life when your last name is Christmas, and especially so when two of your family members are named _ no joke _ Mary.

“People ask me all the time, `What were your parents thinking?'” said the younger Mary Christmas, 30. “I never minded. It’s a conversation piece.”

Wow.  I would definitely mind!

    Her name was Mary in Dumb and Dumber wasn’t it. (Harry: What’s her last name? I’ll look it up.
    Lloyd: You know, I don’t really recall. Starts with an S! Let’s see. Swim? Swammi? Slippy? Slappy? Swenson? Swanson?
    Harry: Maybe it’s on the briefcase.
    Lloyd: Oh, yeah! It’s right here.
    [He reads the manufacturer’s name, which is Samsonite.]
    Lloyd: Samsonite! I was way off! I knew it started with an S, though.) I never thought of that. Interesting.
