Back From Christmas Break

Back from Christmas Break

It was the first day of school in the New Year, and the teacher,
Miss Jones, thought she’d get the class into the swing of things by
asking them about something she knew they had enjoyed.

So she asked young Patrick Murphy: “What did you do for Christmas?”

Patrick addressed the class: “Well Miss Jones, me and my twelve
brothers and sisters went to midnight mass and we sang hymns; then we
got home very late and we put mince pies by the back door and hung up our stockings. Then all excited, we went to bed and wait for Father
Christmas to come with all our toys.”

“Very nice Patrick,” she said. “Now Jimmy Brown, what did you do at Christmas?”

“Well, Miss Jones, me and my sister also went to church with Mom and
Dad, and we sang carols and we got home ever so late. We put cookies and
milk by the chimney and we hung up our stockings. We hardly sleep,
waiting for Santa Claus to bring our presents.”

“Excellent, Jimmy,” she said, and then turned to the next boy in class. “Isaac Cohen, what did you do at Christmas?”

Isaac said, “Well, it’s the same thing every year: Dad comes home
from the office. We all pile into the Rolls Royce and drive to Dad’s toy
factory. When we get inside, we look at all the empty shelves. And then
we sing ‘What A Friend We Have in Jesus’. Then we all went to the
Bahamas to snorkel.”
