I know who Santa Claus is

"I have figured out who Santa Claus is", said the seven year old.

"I always knew Santa Claus", boasted the (almost) five year old.
"Who? Tell me!", challenged the older one
"He's the guy who has a long beard and gives presents."
"Yes, but do you know who he is?"
"I just told you. He is the guy who gives presents at Christmas."
"See, you don't know", gloated the older one.
"Okay, then you tell me."
"Santa Claus is the father of Virgin Mary. Which makes his Jesus' Grandfather!"

Given the way Christmas is going, he might just be right.

Rayna - Out of the mouths of babes... :-). Your sons are so imaginative and creative! Thanks for sharing this exchange. I love it!

Tina said...

LMAO. Leave it to the kids to think of that! Over the years, I've heard some doozies from my boys. Now I wish I'd written them down...

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

Sounds like they took all the pieces and put them together into something that made sense to them. Very creative.

Jesus's grandfather - who knew?

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Hahahahaha! That makes a lot of sense!

Terrific- kids say the darndest things. (Wish I'd have thought of that show first. I'd have been a millionaire.)

@ Margot - Kids are amazing, aren't they?

@ Tina - I am glad we live in a world of blogs- may not have otherwise written them down.

@ Susan - kids are smart that way, aren't they?

@ Alex - makes perfect sense, doesn't it?

@ Debra - doesn't it?

@ Diane - trust kids to come up with something like that. But again, why not?

@ Mary - precisely. After all, his parents need parents too.

@ Vicki - isn't it?

@ Danette - they do. But never seen that show, though I have of course heard of it.

@ Jarlin - thank you. When life gets back to normal, I will be sure to visit.

@ Al - thank you.

@ dipali - it is, isn't it?
