DS1 keeps calling it Pistmas, so we've got a Pistmas tree, Father Pistmas and Pistmas decorations.

Anyone else have any funny way of saying things?

DD says Mary and Jovis!

ds1 calls him farmer titmas

When DD was younger she kept asking who Lodgy was? DP and I were totally bemused as to who or what she was on about.

Eventually she explained by singing:

"Away in a manger
No crib for a bed
The little LODGY
Lay down his sweet head"

PMSL at these. Not to bad on the pronunciation here but if someone would like to inform me on how to explain Christmas Eve to a 3 year old called Eve all advice would be great so far we're going round in circles.

BettySpaghetti, yours reminded me of a Shirley Hughes story, where the little girl gets to be the "Angel-Gave-you-all" in her school nativity.

Have no idea what this was supposed to mean but ds (3) recently asked if he could have a Hindu for Christmas (I think nursery talk of Diwali confused him but not sure).

Ds1 used to call Jesus 'Cheesis'.

And the nativity took place in Bethany-hem, according to DD

My 4yr old neice is singing Christmas Carolines at nursery soon

DS1 is a Joseph and I am still at the number of kids who call him Jofis!

Nothing to do with Cheristmas. But when dd1 was 3 she wanted us to sing jelliken scarecrow on dd2's birthday. Turned out to be:

She's a jelliken scarecrow
She's a jelliken scarecrow
She's a jelliken scarecrow
And so say all of us

(Jolly good fellow)

Another DS here who says 'Farmer Christmas' (he is obsessed with all things farmlike though!)

RubberDuck Wed 29-Nov-06 07:25:26

Ds2 calls Reindeer 'radios'.

Thinking about it, ds1 always used to call them 'radiators'
