Math Jokes - Holliday edition

From this collection of math jokes (I will not repeat the ones that denigrate enginneers.)

Q: What do you get if you divide the circumference of a jack-o-lantern by its diameter?
A: Pumpkin Pi!
(the above is a little late for Halloween)

Q: Why do you rarely find mathematicians spending time at the beach?
A: Because they use sine and cosine to get a tan and don't need the sun!

Q: Why do mathematicians often confuse Christmas and Halloween?
A: Because Oct 31 = Dec 25.
(this year they can confuse Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas because Oct 31 = Nov 27 = Dec 25, somebody check my math)
