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.
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?
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).
