Ever wondered what we kids think about Christmas? Of course we want Santa to come, but maybe we want family, lovely food, songs about the baby Jesus? Nope, as far as kids are concerned, this is what Christmas is all about:
And I mean ‘everything’ important. There is nothing else. Shallow, aren’t we?
Although, before I knew too much about presents, I did learn the Christmas story, all about the baby Jesus, the shepherds, and the kings. I proudly told Mummy and Daddy the facts, and answered their questions. Mummy asked what gifts the kings brought and I firmly announced:
Gold, myrrh, and neklsis!
Did you know that the first Christmas was also the scene of the first ever dancing sheep? It’s true, it must be, because I saw them in the Bug’s Nativity performance.
In all seriousness though, there is a lot of love coming out of kids at Christmas time. Generally directed towards Santa, although M&D get a share of it too – I know they have to report to Santa on my behaviour so it pays to butter them up a bit.
And of course there is the obligatory letter to the man himself, although as the Bug can’t write a lot yet, Santa will have to use his initiative!
Merry Christmas everyone!
