    Christmas is about when you come together as a family and give presents to one another. It doesn’t matter about what you get it is how your family comes together on that day.

    Also on this holiday we have a big break from school. Here in Goodland it is about two weeks long. It is joined with New Years, so we don’t have school then either.

    Your talking about two different things at once. Your talking about Jesus and Santa Claus at the same time. If you want to talk about Santa make a new paragraph and write about the folklore of Santa. Other then that Reindeer and sleds have nothing to do with Christmas.

  6. Sierra Says:

    There are not three wise men. There was three gifts but not three wise men. We do not know how many there are but there was not three. I know it is right because my sister got in a fight with the minister.

  7. Dax Says:

    I disagree with you, Sierra. My background from reading the Bible says that there are 3 Wise Men.

  8. John Says:

  16. Milan Says:

    Christmas is very fun we get almost 3 weeks out of school! We almost always get to see our family.

    Actually, on the Wisemen debate, there was never a set amount of number of Wisemen. Yes it is believed that there were three because there was 3 gifts brought to the newborn messiah, but no the bible does not give a number of Wisemen that visited the new messiah.

  18. Ian Says:

    There is a 50/50 shot that that there was 3 and that there was not three Wisemen, and again the bible does NOT state that there was a definate three Wisemen, if you find the verse or even chapter where it says that there is 3, i will gladly look it up and if so, i will stand corrected.
