Christmas Conversation with Chase

This conversation happened today in the car between 2.8-year-old Chase and me. Except for the fact that this is an English translation of our mostly-Cantonese conversation, the actual conversation was pretty much as written here.

Me: Do you remember what Christmas was about?
Chase: No
Me: Hmmm… is it true that Christmas is about celebrating the Christmas tree?
Chase: Yes
Me: Nope… remember I showed you the Jesus film? There was this baby Jesus……
Chase (interrupting): Jesus birthday
Me: Yes
Chase (stammering): I… want… give… Jesus… a gift
Me: Really? What do you want to give Jesus?
Chase: Candles! And a cake!
Me: A birthday cake?
Chase: I want to have a happy birthday, Jesus and Chase together. I want to have a happy birthday, Jesus and Chase and baby River together.
Me: How about let’s sing a Happy Birthday song to Jesus
Chase (cheerfully): okay!
Both of us: 1… 2… 3… Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday to Jesus, happy birthday to you
Chase (exuberantly): Jesus! Yeah! Jesus! Yeah!
