Christmas time is often a time when families gather together for some great food, good company and funny stories that truly bring out the real meaning of Christmas. If you are interested in finding the perfect inspirational and humorous story that your entire family will love, consider books, movies and family tales.

Children's stories

There are many different Christmas children's stories that are both humorous and inspirational. For example, the story of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer combines humorous elements with the inspirational message that children should never give up on following their dreams. The movie "Elf," featuring Will Ferrell, makes for a funny movie the whole family can enjoy, while also inspiring the family to remember the true meaning of Christmas spirit. Many short children's books that come out around Christmas are also able to combine humour with inspiration, so watch in your local bookshop for new releases.

Family stories

Remember that sometimes you don't a need a story written by a famous author or directed on a Hollywood stage. You can share your own family's Christmas stories to add humour and inspiration to the season. Consider telling these stories at family gatherings where a family member did something so funny that taught everyone a lesson. For example, tell the story about how your mother burnt the Christmas dessert in the oven while the family was enjoying a meal together, to combine humour with the inspirational message that spending time together is the most important thing.
