    | NJ, USA | Children, Grandchildren, Grandparents, Parents & Guardians, Sons & Daughters, Theme Of The Month

    (I am at my mother’s helping her put up her Christmas decorations.)

    Son: “Daddy, how come you got a fake tree?”

    Me: “So it won’t make a mess, and grandma can use it again.”

    Son: “Well, that’s not nice. Jesus would want a real tree.”

    Grandma: “Well, grandma doesn’t want a real nice mess.”

    Son: *yelling* “Why won’t you buy Jesus nice things?!”

    A Santa Clause, Part 2

    | NJ, USA | Children, Parents & Guardians, Sons & Daughters

    (I am about 10 years old, and around the holidays I walk up to my mom.)

    Me: “Mom, is Santa real?”

    Mom: “Do you want presents for Christmas?”

    Me: “Yes.”

    Mom: “Then Santa’s real.”

    (To this day I have never questioned the existence of Santa in front of my mom, and I am now 23!)

    Brother: “Are these potions?”

    Me: “Yes, but only for grown-ups…”
