Christmas Resources

By Sam Johnson
     One of the great things about having small children around the house at Christmas time (or any time for that matter) is the curiosity that bubbles forth from them.
     As the Johnson family gathers for Christmas festivities, the house is filled with children of all ages, including nieces and nephews, the children of nieces and nephews, and grandkids.
     It's not unusual to hear them ask questions such as:
    --  "What is Santa's real name?"
    -- "Who were the 3 wise men?"
    -- "What does 'noel' mean?"
    -- "Why do people kiss under the mistletoe?

     Sometimes I can answer their questions, and sometimes I can't.
     But this year I've done my research and am ready to tackle some of the questions about Christmas that might be put to me by our curious kids.
     I gladly share some of these with you in case you find yourself in the same spot.
     Check out the links below for more answers to Christmas myths and facts!
