Christmas Riddles: How to Distract Excited Kids and Have Fun at Christmas Time

Do you remember telling riddles as a child? How about Knock Knock Jokes? Are you a parent who has listened over and over again to silly questions with answers that you just don't get, but that send your child into hysterical laughter?

If you are like me, you will answer all three of these questions with "Yes!" And you may have noticed that the riddle-telling rises to a pitch during times of intense excitement, such as while waiting for Christmas. Need some Christmas riddles to liven up your family time? How many days til Christmas? Aaaahhhh!

Kids love riddles, the sillier the better. On this hub you will find some Christmas and other riddles to share with your budding comedian. Here are some Christmas riddles to tickle your family's funny bone.

Answering Riddles for Silly Fun

You'll Get Points, Too!

I started out with a dozen questions and answers on this hub, plus a duel, but I keep adding to the number. Each riddle has at least two possible answers. One is technically correct, but if you prefer the other answer that's all right, too. Anything for a laugh.

Truth is, some of these riddles are so silly that I don't know why one answer is better than another. You are free to choose whichever answer you prefer when repeating them to your kids. They may find another answer that isn't even written here. In fact, you could challenge them to make up as many answers as they can think of. Challenge them to create their own riddles, too. A family night of riddle writing could become a tradition at your house.

Which Do You Prefer, Riddles or Knock Knock Jokes?

Wall Humor: This was a favorite riddle of mine when I was small. I thought I'd start with something dumb and familiar.
