Pom Pom's Childlike Christmas

Forgive me; I still haven't visited all the Pausing Posters and will be later still with all you beautifully childlike guardians of magic. But...

I want to talk about presents. Louisa's Jo knew that Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without any presents. Strawberry Jo didn't at all enjoy Arthur Christmas because, "Mummy, everybody knows that isn't how Santa works". I'm afraid that for all my thinking and framing and positioning, presents are a huge factor in a truly child-like Christmas.

So with last week's tree and next week's baking, "I bring you gold!" (Mattman's first Nativity line as a king aged 3...)

I loved giving our children gifts when they were your boys' ages. It was thrilling watching their faces!
That's a cute photo of you on Christmas morning!

Oh, I like presents, too, or at least the idea of them, or at least wrapped ones under the tree, or at least finding the perfect one for one you love the most. Presents are good. Gifts are good. I vote yes.

Yes, presents are important and I am sure even little children get to find that giving really is as good as receiving, however small the gift, it is very enjoyable to watch somebody open a gift you have wrapped with love.
