My Son, shouts out, “It’s Christmas! ” as he sees that the Christmas trees are being brought out of storage into the house. He is three this year, and this is the first year he has been extremely excited.
I have to tell him to “Calm down” because “It’s not quite Christmas yet.”
“Let’s Help Mommy Decorate the tree.”
“Oh LOOK Mommy at ALL the DECORATIONS,” His little voice squeals with excitement.
I do have to say, my Son has a good eye and his placement of the Christmas Décor was quite exceptional.
Later after all the decorations have been hung with care my Son asks,
“Mommy were did all the presents go?”
“Santa has to bring them.”
“Where did Santa go Mommy?”
“To the North Pole to get your presents ready. Do you know why we celebrate Christmas?”
“No. It’s Jesus’s Birthday!”
“So we get to eat cake then Mommy?”
“If you would like too.”
“Christmas is Jesus Birthday!” My Son then goes over to his play stove to cook Jesus a Birthday Cake, and then he pretends his baby doll is Jesus and feeds it to her. From the mouths of Children.
My son was so excited he fell asleep on the couch, and every morning he wakes up he says with joy, “Its Christmas!” I think every day of the year should be celebrated like this with joy and excitement of the good news. Sometimes it takes a child to put things in perspective for you.
So the halls are filled with holiday cheer on this Christmas year, and plenty of cake to celebrate Jesus’s Birthday.
