world religions 101: comparitive analysis

At preschool, they talk about all the various wintry holidays. This week, the kids have been learning a lot about Hanukkah. Caroline is predictably enthralled with the games and gelt.

Today, while I was picking up some stuff at the grocery store, I saw little bags of milk chocolate gelt; so I picked up a couple to surprise her with after she had lunch.

She was happy to eat her gelt, and she sat on the edge of the coffee table mmm-ing for a while. After the last chocolaty coin was done, she looked at me and sighed and said, "I wish I was Jewish."

I laughed and said that Jewish kids don't usually do the whole Santa thing. Her eyes got huge.

"Wow, really? Now I'm confused."

I told her that we could do a little bit of the Hanukkah fun AND Santa at our house.

"Phew. That's good. Chocolate cash or Santa... I don't know if I could make a choice that serious."
