A Childlike Christmas - Christmas Every Day?

I was inspired by the immortal words of Wizzard's Christmas hit ;) to ask my child-interviewees what they thought it would be like if it was Christmas every day. Here are some of their responses:"Presents every day?!!!"

"I would have presents every day and I would like it very much."

"I would sit in the morning, have a rest, and then have a good dinner and be ready for the presents."
"You would get too many presents. You wouldn't know which toy to play with and the house wouldn't be big enough for all the stuff."

"Then Christmas would be boring! It would be all boring and you'd get presents every day and you wouldn't have room to store them. And Santa wouldn't have any time!"

"It wouldn't be like a surprise any more..."

I do like listening to children. For more Childlike Christmas posts, of all sorts, do go and see Pom Pom's list of everyone taking part!

I love your interviews with children, Floss. What a great idea! I have only purchased four gifts and I really wish I was making a few gifts but school's so busy, I will have to wait.
KIds love the anticipation around the gifts and we've had many "lots of packages" Christmases, but now that we are grandparents, I have to admit that I'm relieved that we are not in charge of that anymore.
Thank you so much for joining in with me for A Childlike Christmas!

Out of the mouths of babes! Amazing to me that they realized it wouldn't be special anymore. xo

I think your class understand the meaning of 'less is more'!
