The True Meaning of Christmas
We have quite a number of Christmas books, and each year I pack them away with the rest of the Christmas decorations. This keeps them special, and safe, and it prevents my sons from asking to read ‘Twas the Night before Christmas in the middle of summer.
We’ve been getting out the holiday decorations, and so the books are now out in our reading nook at the top of our stairs. Last night, my husband was reading a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Christmas story to our two little “Mouseketeers.” When the book was finished, Mike asked Tyler (age five) and Austin (age three), “What is the true meaning of Christmas.”
Without missing a beat, Tyler said “Giving.”
Wow. Amen, little guy.
