Before school let out for Christmas break my son Rhett's 2nd grade teacher asked each student in class what they thought Christmas is about. Here is the response that he typed out.
The actual project he turned in is below and I have retyped verbatim what he wrote out.
The most important thing about Christmas is Jesus' Birthday and Jesus' being born its also about the wise men and Jesus' Mom and dad.. They had to sleep in a barn well Jesus was born. When Jesus was born he had to sleep in some hay in the barn. It smelld bad there was donkys and shee and maybe a cow. Three wise men followed a star that took them to the new born king and the new born king is Jesus! When the wise men go there they gave Jesus some stuff and that's what Christmas is all a bout.
