Hamsters Don't Celebrate Christmas

This morning before Ethan left for school: Mom, what are we going to get Jacob (hamster) for Christmas.

Me: Nothing

Ethan: I was thinking we could build him a big play area in a box with tubes and things to climb on.

Me: He already has a play area. It's called his cage. He's got a wheel. That's fun.

Ethan: Maybe we can each get him one present so he would have 5 things to open on Christmas.

Me: If you want to buy him presents, be my guest.

Ethan: We need to take Jacob to the vet. You are supposed to take a hamster to the vet once a year.

Me: (Are you kidding!!) I don't think so. Besides, he's not a year old yet.

Ethan: Can Jacob have a stocking?

Me: Ethan, hamsters don't celebrate Christmas

Angela: FIVE things? Where are the other four coming from?

Is the hamster coming to disneyland?
