Two Children Discuss Theological Differences

Angela Zimmerman

[Scene: Two five-year-old boys — one Jewish, one Christian — eating lunch during the holiday season.]

Christian: I know why Santa doesn't visit your house.
Jewish: Why?
Christian: Because you killed God's son.
Jewish: No I didn't.
Christian: Yes you did.
Jewish: Not me. I'm five.

[Long pause.]

Christian: Some really old Jewish people related to you killed him.
Jewish [shrugging]: Wanna trade snacks?
Christian: No fruit trades.
