The Nativity story - the unofficial version

Saturday night, we were just just lounging in the living room after dinner, listening to Christmas music. We asked the kids what they would think of on Christmas eve before they went to bed and Andre instantly said, "Presents and turkey!" Lesley-Anne, being slightly less worldly, said, "It's Jesus' birthday. I wish Him Happy Birthday before I go to bed."

We thought it was an opportune time to remind Andre that the season doesn't revolve around his material and gastronomic desires, hence the conversation below ensued.

Me: "Andre, Christmas is Jesus' birthday. Did you remember that?"

Andre: "Oh yah hor."

Kenneth: "Do you know the story of how baby Jesus was born?"

Andre: "He was born in a stable."

Me: "That's right. Then what else happened?"

Andre: "There was a star."

Me: "Very good. Who did the star lead to the baby?"

Andre: "Jesus."

Me: "No, I mean who did the star bring to Jesus?

Andre: "God?"

Kenneth: "No lah, who followed the star?"

Andre looked blank, so Kenneth prompted: "The three...?"

Andre: "Wise Men"

Thank God, I thought for a moment he was going to say the three little pigs.

Kenneth: "What did the Wise Men bring to Jesus?"

Andre (slowly): "Gold, myrrh... and Frankenstein."

Wah, that must have been a scary sight, the third Wise Man leading Frankenstein to baby Jesus.
