The death of Father Christmas

Emily: “If Father Christmas dies, how will all the presents get delivered to all the children? Because it will take a very long time to get another Father Christmas.”

Me: “Hmmm. Good point. I don’t know. Perhaps ask your school teachers about that.”

Emily: “My teachers probably don’t know either.”

Me: “Yes, they might not.”

Emily: “Perhaps the elves could do it.”

Me (being slightly hard of hearing): “Owls? — what owls?”

Emily: “The Elves! The ones who make all the presents. Perhaps as well as making all the presents, the Elves could also deliver them.”

Me: Ah yes, I expect that is how they would deal with it. I expect your teachers would be interested to hear how you think they would deal with it.”

Emily: “Yes, probably.”
