As the parent of a six year old I am often struck with the things that Nicholas comes up with in conversation. I shouldn’t be surprised because this is part of the growing up process. As we are approaching Christmas both of our children are caught up in the season like we all are because the season is everywhere. One thing my children have been able to do multiple times is see Santa. They even saw him get take off a roof in Lawrence Kansas by way of a firetruck ladder. Needless to say both kids loved it.
Nicholas recently asked Dawna and I what Santa’s address was. I told him 1 North Pole. I don’t know if he believed me or not. While Santa is an icon to the Christmas season we have impressed upon him why we celebrate Christmas and this is because of Jesus’ birth. Let us not forget that.
