Math Jokes for the Holidays

Happy holidays from MJ4MF!

Ho Ho Ho

Okay, pop quiz!

  1. How many total gifts did my true love give me during The Twelve Days of Christmas?
  2. How many candles are burned in a menorah during the eight days of Hanukkah?
  3. How many candles are burned in the kinara during the seven days of Kwanzaa?

If you’re feeling in the holiday spirit, you can sing a mathematical song, possibly one that starts like this.

Deck the halls with boughs of holly,
Fa (La)9

Or if not, you can just enjoy these jokes…

Which burns longer, a red candle or a green candle?
Neither! Candles burn shorter, not longer!

Did you hear about the modest computer scientist who declared one of Santa’s helpers obsolete, with the hope of eventually phasing him out?
He was elf deprecating.
