Psychologists would call these jokes gallows humour. The situation is so stark that we need to laugh about it to get through. Maybe that's true. We need to laugh now, we need Christmas now because what was certain last month is no longer certain today. Today we need to laugh, not because we are insensitive, not because we are foolish, not because we are ignoring the problems of the world. We need to laugh in order that we might live, live, live. Blessings.
