Philosophy for Children: Christmas

Philosophy for Children: Christmas

We started by watching the Spot and Stripe video ‘Christmas’ and then discussed if it would be good if we celebrated Christmas every day, or if it is better if we just keep Christmas for one special time of year.

Our aim is to be able to give our opinion with a reason for it. We encourage the children that we can still be friends and listen respectfully to each other, even if we don’t agree.

 

Here are our thoughts:

  • I would like Christmas to be once a year because we can get lots of presents and food. If we had that much food in our tummies every day, we would get fat!
  • I would like Christmas to be once a year because it gets too cold and it’s not fair on some people who don’t have a house. Father Christmas would have to put their presents in a small tent.
  • I would like Christmas to be every day because I would be able to open toys from Santa every day.
  • I would like Christmas to be once a year because it would stay special and I wouldn’t like to eat chocolate every day.
  • I would like Christmas tp be once a year because it would be too tiring if it was every day and it wouldn’t be special.
  • I would like Christmas to be every day because I would pop party Poppers every day and have the Christmas tree up every day.
  • I would like Christmas once a year because it makes me laugh and it makes me really happy and I can play with my toys and it’s really, really nice.
  • I would like Christmas to be once a year because I like getting loads of new toys from Father Christmas and Christmas will stay special.
  • I would like Christmas to stay the same and be only once a year, because it will always be special. I like the surprise of getting presents every year and I love pigs in blankets.
  • I would like Christmas to be once a year because if it was every day it wouldn’t be as fun and we wouldn’t be able to go to school to learn. If we had Christmas dinner every day we would get too fat.
  • I would like Christmas to be once a year because I like to open loads of presents, and it would be too much work for Father Christmas if it was Christmas every day.
  • I would like Christmas to be once a year because Christmas has to be very special as every year we get presents.
  • I would like Christmas to be once a year because it would be easier for Santa and his elves. I would only like Christmas to be once a year because we eat too many Brussel sprouts!
  • I would like Christmas to be every day because I love pulling crackers and I love opening presents.
  • I would like Christmas to be once a year because it would be better and more special because, if it was every day, Santa would get tired.
  • I would like Christmas to be once a year because it would be special. If it was every day people wouldn’t celebrate Christmas as much especially Santa.
  • I would like Christmas to only be once a year because it would be special. If Christmas was every day Santa’s elves would even run out of the pieces to make toys.
  • I would like Christmas to be once a year because it would still be special and your house gets all messy!
  • I would like Christmas to be once a year because I don’t want to be greedy or get fat with all the toys and presents from Santa.
  • I would like Christmas on one day because I don’t want to get fat from all the food and chocolates.
  • I would like Christmas to be once a year because it’s a special day. Santa has a special sleigh and special reindeer who need to eat carrots to see in the dark. If it was Christmas every day there wouldn’t be enough carrots to give to the reindeer and they wouldn’t be see to deliver the toys on the sleigh.
  • I would like Christmas to be one dat a year because I don’t want to get fat after eating all the food.
  • I would like Christmas once a year because I have a ballerina on my Christmas tree and she’s very pretty with glitter on. She is very special.
  • I would like Christmas once a year because I don’t want lots of toys. I would like to go to the park on the swing, and in the park we would see reindeer.
  • I would like Christmas once a year because it will be fun, because you can get some new toys and you can play with them.
  • I would like Christmas every day because it’s such fun and you can make a snowman.
  • I would like it once a year because if we eat too masny things it will make us fat.
  • I would like Christmas once a year because it would be special, undoing all the wrapping and it makes a noise. I like the noise.
  • I would like Christmas once a year, because it’s special and you get some presents.
