Do You Know the Real Reason We Celebrate Christmas?

As I was fixing Garrett's bowl of cereal this morning, I overheard a conversation between him and Gracie, one of the little girls that comes over to catch the bus.  

He was showing off our Advent Calendar, one of my favorite Christmas decorations that we've had since Greg was a baby.  Unfortunately one of the Wise Men has long since disappeared.  

Anyway back to the conversation - "Gracie, do you know the real reason we celebrate Christmas?"  
"It's Jesus's birthday", she replied.
"Yep, you're right!"

Her twin sister Marissa comes over to see what they're doing.
"Marissa, do you know the real reason we celebrate Christmas?" 
. . . . . . . . .

I think he gets it! - Pretty smart for a 6 year old.
