Brother Rat’s Christmas Message

390CIt is Christmas Day this week and I can’t wait to see what presents I will get. Helen says not to expect too much because Christmas is not about presents but about celebrating the birth of Jesus. Does that mean Jesus gets all the presents? I hope not, I do like getting presents.

It is summer here and it feels all wrong to be having Christmas in warm weather along with barbeques and picnics. I much prefer dark evenings and snow outside. But then again it is not all that bad being warm. Perhaps someone has a nice warm closet for me for next year?


Happy Christmas everyone
