THE TRUE MEANING OF CHRISTMAS
THIS KID IS A QUOTE MACHINE
I'll have a book by the time Ella is 5 years old.
We've been talking a lot about the meaning of Christmas in our home. Ella even has a favorite episode of Veggie Tales (funny kid show) which focuses on the spirit of the holiday. It's called, "The Toy Who Saved Christmas."
So she's prancing around as we're decorating the tree the other night, declaring that she would like 10 gifts from Santa.
MOM: Ella, that's not what Christmas is about.
DAD: It's not about how many gifts you get from Santa. You know, just like on your favorite show lately, the "Toy Who Saved Christmas."
MOM: Yeah, what did he say the meaning of Christmas is?
MOM: Very good. Christmas is about giving.
ELLA: Yeah. Santa gives gifts.
