A New Christian Holiday

Second Born Son: Are we going to church tomorrow?

Me: Yes, it isĀ Palm Sunday.

SBS: What’s so special about that?

Me: That’s the day that Jesus road into Jerusalem on a donkey and people spread out robes and palm branches.

SBS: Oh, so what’s next week then?

Me: Easter – when Jesus is crucified.

SBS: Crucified? What’s that?

Me: (perplexed – we are regular Easter attendees and he’s heard the Easter story before.) When he was nailed to the cross.

SBS: Ew ya, that’s gross! But I thought that’s why we have Halloween, cuz it’s scary!?

I’m a failure as a mother…..
