Holiday puns every communicator should avoid

Be ready for it

Now that Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday are behind us, the holiday marketing marathon begins. For the next 20 or so days, there will be no escaping the holiday slogans, puns, jingles, and word play. Some of it will be clever. Some of it . . . not so much.

Below are a few that fall into the “not so clever” group. You might even call them ho, ho, horrible.

Yule love this

Be the ghost of Christmas present

Fleece Navidad

Let’s get elfed up

Get caroled away: give the gift of music

Brace your elves

You’ll love our new Santa-tizer

Do you suffer from Tinselitis?

All I want for Christmas is ewe.

Don’t be shell-fish this Christmas

Hairy Christmas?

Bros before ho, ho, ho’s

Just wanted to sleigh have a Happy Holiday.

Jolly holly-days to you and yours!

The time is near. Give a big cheer.


Santa Paws is here

Bark! The Herald Angels Sing

Dachshund through the snow

Have yourself a yappy Christmas

Have a very Meowy Christmas

Dog bless us, every one.


Questionable claims
These gifts will boost your elf-esteem

If you don’t believe, you won’t receive.

Find you holiday happy place at Lake Ridge Mall.

Our bells are jingling!

Unwrap the feels

Hope this season finds you all wrapped up in happy!

Christmas is the day that holds all time together

Nothing says holidays like a cheese log.
