Funny Things from Yesterday: Christmas Story by Crosby

Robert N. Tidwell, Sr.

I must apologize for not having this story last week. It is a belated Christmas story that I did not have all the facts in time to send it in. Hopefully, you will enjoy it.

Crosby as you probably remember is our 3-year-old great-grandson. He sometimes amazes us with things he says and does. This is the latest thing he did at school and it was videoed for his parents. Some may have already seen it on Facebook.

The teacher asked him his name and he said, “Crosby.”

The teacher then asked him questions about Christmas. Crosby said that an angel came in the air and Mary and Joseph were scared. He said the angel told them to name the baby Jesus.

The teacher asked him where they were. He replied, “Bethlehem.”

“And what did they do in Bethlehem?” Crosby said that they asked someone if they had any room and they said no. They asked someone else if they had any room and they said no.

The teacher asked, “Where did they stay?” Crosby said that they stayed in a barn with the animals.

The teacher said, “With animals?” Crosby said again, “With animals.”

Crosby then said that the baby came out.

Crosby said after this, “The angel told the shepherds about Jesus and they sang.”

The teacher asked if the shepherds brought any gifts. Crosby said they didn’t because they didn’t have too much money. The teacher asked about the wisemen. Cosby said that they saw his star and they came. The teacher then asked if the wisemen brought him any gifts? Crosby said that they brought him some perfume, gold and some clothes.

The teacher then asked if Christmas is about getting presents? Crosby said, “No.” Then he added, “Sometimes it is.”

The teacher then asked again, “What is Christmas about?”

Crosby said, “Jesus.”

Sorry to be late on this Christmas story, but it is so heartwarming that young children are learning the true meaning of Christmas at school, as well as at home.

My HAPPY NEW YEAR wish is one day late, but God’s blessings to everyone in 2021!
