Top 10 Reasons Teachers Love Christmas

10.  I get to decorate my Christmas tree for free with teacher ornaments.

9.  I can wear Santa hats, reindeer ears, and elf ears at work without getting funny looks.

8.  I can create math problems that start like this... If Santa's sleigh weighed 500 pounds and was traveling at 80 miles per hour ...

7.  Tacky sweaters and shirts are ALL the rage - kids love them!

6.  I get to add to my collection of teacher mugs.

5.  My favorite Christmas movies can become lesson plans!

4.  My countdown to Christmas ends on the last day of school when I pull out of the parking lot!

3.  I get the privilege of hosting a Christmas party with 25 hyped up kids. Who wouldn't want to do that?

2.  I can answer the phone, "Buddy the Elf, what's your favorite color?" And no one thinks I'm crazy. Okay, maybe they think I am still a little crazy…

AND the TOP reason that teachers love Christmas….. drum roll please….. 

1.  I can tell my class, "You know, Santa calls teachers.”
