A Christmas Story

The following is an actual conversation between myself and Brandon (not his real name), a 5th grader, in the hallway at his school.

Scot: Does your family celebrate Christmas?

Brandon: Yes. We have presents and all of that stuff…

Scot: Well, have a great Christmas!

Brandon: I will….do you celebrate Christmas?

Scot: Yes I do.

Brandon: Are you sure you don’t celebrate Hanukkah?

Scot: Pretty sure.

Brandon: That’s funny, because you look like you celebrate Hanukkah.

Scot: (Somewhat taken aback due to his rather obvious Swedish heritage) Have you ever met anyone that celebrates Hanukkah?

Brandon: No, I just thought you looked like you may celebrate Hanukkah.
