The teacher, Mrs. Klukas, asked each of her students how they celebrated Christmas. She called first on young Peter Murphy. “Tell me, Peter, what do you do at Christmas time?”
Peter addressed the class, “My twelve brothers and sisters and I go to midnight Mass and we sing hymns. Then we come home very late and we put mince pies by the back door and hang up our stockings. Then we go to bed and wait for Father
Christmas to come with all our toys.”
“Very nice, Peter,” she said.
“Now, Freddy Peters, what do you do at Christmas?”
“Sister and I also go to church with Mum and Dad, & we sing carols. When we get home, we put cookies and milk by the chimney and hang up our stockings. We hardly sleep waiting for Santa Claus to bring our presents.” “That’s also very nice, Freddy,” she said.
Realizing that there was a Jewish boy in the class and not wanting to leave him out of the discussion, she asked him the same question. “Now, Isaac Cohen, what do you do at Christmas?”
“Well, we also sing carols,” Isaac responded.
Surprised, Mrs. Klukas questioned further. “Tell us what you sing.”
“Well, it’s the same thing every year. Dad comes home from the office, we all pile into the Rolls Royce and drive to his toy factory. When we get inside, we look at all the empty shelves and sing, “What a friend we have in Jesus”, then
we all go to the Bahamas.”
