  1. Why are we taking all this good stuff to other people?

    Because it’s a wonderful way to celebrate Christmas. Jesus spent His whole life giving, and it’s very important that we learn to give too.

  2. Are we giving to that man, Daddy?

    Shhhhh. No, sweetheart, we don’t know that man.

  3. Did Jesus only give to people He knew?

    Well, I think maybe He sort of knew everybody.

  4. Does He know that man?

    Yes He does.

  5. Sir, I hope you’ll accept this little gift from our family. Merry Christmas.

    Thank you. Merry Christmas to you.

  6. Giving feels good, doesn’t it, Dad?

    Yes it does.
