Story · The kid’s really starting to take the world in, so we explained for the first time what Christmas is, who was born and some of what he taught, and assembled a first-Christmas narrative from the usual texts in Luke and Matthew. As I write this he’s sleeping, visions dancing in his head, probably not of Jesus.

Everyone has their own Christmas and some are lousy, but I hope yours is good.
