Kid.02 asked me what is my favorite part of Christmas. Keep in mind, this is coming from a Jewish kid. I told him it is early Christmas morning, when you’re just waking up, and your mom says you can go into the living room with your brother and sister, and you first spy all the stockings, full to bursting, hanging from the chimney mantle.
The next best thing is later in the day, when the opening and eating are finished: looking at the pile of stuff you got, all that potential fun yet to be had.
Lastly, Christmas is wonderful late at night, just sitting by the tree that is still lit up and smelling good.
Then he asked, Mom, how can Santa bring clothes if his elves only have hammers and bells in their workshop?
