The Reason for the Season

We are trying to teach Zack about Christmas - it's not working very well. Here are a few funny examples:

  • A couple of weeks ago Jeanine was saying how excited she was about Christmas this year because Zack's old enough to know what it's all about. At that, Lesli said, "Zack, is Christmas about the baby Jesus?" He looked at her like she had gone crazy and said, "No. Santa Claus."

  • Jeanine's been telling Zack that at Christmas we give presents to others to show them how much we love them. She then asked, "Why do you give presents at Christmas?" He replied, "I don't. I just get them."

  • We were again talking about Christmas and the baby Jesus with Zack when my mom picked up a piece from her nativity scene and asked, "Zack, who's this?" I looked at the piece she'd picked up and saw that it was a snowman in a manger - that's right the baby Jesus snowman. Apparently all the nativity members in this particular nativity are snowman. My mom answered her own question saying, "It's baby Jesus." I burst out laughing. I don't remember the baby Jesus having a carrot for a nose. No wonder the kid has no idea what we're talking about!!

That is truly HILARIOUS! I love little kids and the funny things they say. I totally agree about your comment that it's not wonder kids are confused.
