Child | Children | Christmas | Family | Prayer | Tradition | Understanding

A friend’s five-year-old son had been confused concerning the family’s Christmas tradition of gathering in a circle, holding hands, to say grace before the big holiday meal. In prior years he had cried and shown contempt with the practice. But this year he was different. When the appropriate time came he gladly clasped the hands of the adjoining relatives. The prayer was uttered. Then the circle of people disbanded in all directions. All of a sudden the startled child burst into tears. “What’s wrong?” asked his father. Through the sobs he uttered, “I thought we were going to play ring around the rosies.” By William Richard Ezell, Naperville, IL
