E: I love Christmastime.
Me: What's one of your favorite parts of Christmas?
E: Well, my favorite part is the presents. And my next favorite is praying around the Christmas tree.
Me: Have we done that before?
E: No, but I would like to. When the children gather around the Christmas tree to pray, they're praying for the presents. And then they gather and have the Christmas Feast, or Christmas Dinner.
(hmmmm...seems a little bit like the animated version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas...)
