What children say about Christmas

Letters to Santa from various children: (5-7 years)

I know I behaved badly this year but I promise to behave much better next year so will it be okay if you still come and visit me with presents?

Can Mrs. Santa come instead of you? I'm very sorry but I'm scared of you.

Don't worry if our dog Jack barks.

Mummy will leave out biscuits and milk for you but you have to share with the reindeers as well. They  must be very hungry.

Dear Santa. Hope you have a good life at the North Pole. How deep is the ice?

Dear Santa. Please may I have a Unicorn.
I love you


Jesus's Mummy and Daddy are called Mary and Jovis.
Debbie, 4.

We celebrate Christmas because Santa comes and gives us lots and lots of presents.
Ben, 7.

The Angel Gabriel is a big white fairy. He helped Mary and Joseph look after the baby - kind of like a doctor.
Erin, 6.

I am not really a Christian. I believe in unicorns and pixies.
Ellyshia, 9.

I don't know what presents the wise men brought Jesus, but a Lego set would have been better.
William, 7.

They brought Jesus gold and myrhh, but I would have brought him a nice warm blanket.
Rebecca, 5. 


Where was Jesus born?

A long way away from Liverpool.
Dominic, 6.

Two boys talking:

Do you believe in the devil?

No, I'm sure it's just the same thing like Santa Claus, it's just my dad.

Happy Christmas time to all of you!

Thank you so much for the morning chuckles! Love that little William thinks a Lego set would have made a nice gift from the wise men.

I'll be back later, to laugh some more. It feels good to laugh.

Hello all you sweeties!
Children are so impulsive. It must be fun - (well, not always) - to be a teacher for the small children. What a goldmine of sayings!
I think we're all beginning to be in a Christmas mood now and I hope you'll al have a lovely Christmas time with your family - and your grandchildren. Remember the notebook!!
Welcome back Teresa, it's so nice to see you again.
