Talk of Christmas

Christmas makes children talk, even more then normal, if that is possible.

We celebrated Christmas on Christmas Eve. After opening our presents ED recounted all the other Christmas' we would be attending during the next several days, Christmas' which included presents.

Hubby: ED what is the meaning of Christmas?

ED: Jesus is the meaning of Christmas, but right now I'm focused on presents.

And stay focused on presents he did. Several days later we were attending a family Christmas, enjoying a lovely meal at a restaurant.

ED: When do we open the presents?

ME: This isn't a present Christmas gathering.

:::chuckles around the table:::

It took ED some time to process the fact that Christmas is celebrated without presents.

Santa Claus visited my parent's house the day we were all there celebrating.

We haven't included Santa in our family's festivities before, if I'm buying the presents I want the full credit. Our children have funny ideas about Mr. Claus, one year not believing him, the next year believing in him.

EM and I were looking at the pictures from Santa's visit.

Me: EM, is that really Santa Claus?

EM: No. He (the guy in the picture) wears glasses.

Me: So the real Santa does not wear glasses?

EM: Mom, just go with me, OK.

Happy Tiny Talk Tuesday. For more fun head over to Mary's at Not Before 7.
