We only have a half day of school and the classes are only 20 minutes long, so there is not much getting done. In view of that, I had my first period class write down what they thought was important to know about Christmas.
I love giving presents to kids who have nothing and can’t have Christmas.
I want people to know that Christmas is about Jesus and not Santa.
Christmas is when Jesus was born. That is more important than presents.
This Christmas holiday, remember it’s all about giving, not receiving. Be thankful for what you get.
And finally, Chloe wrote:
Christmas is not just about ‘opening presents’ or ‘eating a lot of food.’ It’s about celebrating the birth of Jesus, celebrating with your family. Don’t forget that.
Not a bad sampling at all. Seems that they have a pretty good understanding of the holiday.
