I forgot to share my 9-year-old’s wisdom pertaining to Santa’s sleigh commute the night of Christmas Eve.
Me: “It’s time to get in bed. We don’t want Santa flying by our place because you aren’t yet asleep.”
Gib: “It’s too early, he hasn’t left yet.”
Me: “Of course he has, he’s delivering to other parts of the world right now. He’s got to deliver to everyone.”
Gib, letting me in on a secrect: “Mom, he doesn’t have to go to the whole entire world, you know.”
Me: “of course he does. Santa delivers to all boys and girls…if they’ve been good.”
Gib, insistent: “No, he gives different holidays, like Hanukkah, so he can have a break and it makes it easier to deliver.”
SO that’s how he gets it all done in one night… I never thought of it that way. Makes perfect sense.
