Santa, according to M

December 6 is apparently St. Nicholas Day.  Four-year-old daughter M and I went to a little event at our church with dinner, crafts, and story time about St. Nicholas.

M as Santa, sort of.

Near the end of story time with Pastor Hughes, she talked to the kids about similarities between St. Nicholas and Santa.

Pastor Hughes: Have you ever seen Santa at your house?
Kids: No.
PH: Why do you think that is?
Kid: Because he’s invisible!
PH: Well, I’m not sure he’s invisible. Can you think of another reason?
M (age 4): He’s nocturnal.

Vocab for the win, you guys.  Next up: crepuscular (active at dawn and dusk).

Santa and a skeptical-looking me. Circa 1980?
