Click here to read the first 75 lines of the story Try getting Father Christmas to drive children for ice cream and see what he does. Fifth, Father Christmas, no matter where you see him, is always in a hurry. He never seems to have enough time to spend with children. Sure, toys are great, but no toy can equal time spent with a Grandfather. One of the special things about a Grandfather is he always makes time for children. God made Grandfathers for children. Even though most Grandfathers are hard of hearing, they always hear what is important. Sixth, Father Christmas, when his work is finished, lays his finger alongside of his nose and up the chimney he goes. Now that is fine, but it was a Grandfather who invented the "pull-my-finger" joke. I know similarities exist between Father Christmas and Grandfathers. Both, for example, are rotund and quite jolly. Both love cookies. However, that just may be where the similarity ends. What people do not know, and I have this on good authority, Father Christmas always sends the Christmas bill to Grandfathers. Of course, Grandfathers do not complain about this for one moment. We are glad to help whenever we can; however, it would be nice to have a little bit of recognition during the Christmas holiday. One thing Grandfathers can do Father Christmas cannot do is pray. Blessed are the grandchildren who have a Grandfather who prays for them. "Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much." (James 5:16 KJV.) One righteous Grandfather is worth all the Father Christmases in the world. Tweet
