The 46 Very Best Elf Jokes

Some big laughs about Santa’s little helpers. 

As the holiday season approaches, and malls around the world start putting up their decorations, Christmas fever becomes contagious. But while one guy gets all the credit, Santa would never be able to deliver toys to girls and boys around the world without his little helpers. Let’s take the spotlight off St Nick and his reindeers for now and focus on the unsung heroes of Christmas – the little people, literally: Santa’s elves.  

According to Christmas mythology, elves have a number of important tasks, such as making the toys in Santa’s workshop, looking after his reindeers, preparing his sleigh, and helping him keep track of which children have been naughty and which have been nice. If recent movies such as The Santa Clause and The Christmas Chronicles are to be believed, they even function as Santa’s bodyguards and secret police.  

Not only are elves hard workers, but they’re also a great source of comedy. That’s why we’ve put together this collection of our favorite elf jokes for kids.

Read on to get into the Christmas spirit with some big laughs about these small and magical creatures.
