“C-h-r-i-s-t-m-a-s … Christmas!”

What’s different this year to last year?

Hide the lists.
Hide the dockets.
Hide the order forms.
Hide the toy catalogues.
Hide the instruction booklets.

When literacy comes to town, nothing is safe at Christmas time because now the Seven Year Old can READ! Really read. Inquisitively, incessantly and intensely.

Suddenly, the management of presents has reached a new level, and things will never be the same again.

And that’s okay with me.
