The next couple of weekends will see assorted Christmas fairs and sales in Wanstead schools and churches (see inchoate list below). In an act of some one-upmanship, the Wanstead Church School fair on Saturday is to have some real reindeer. Wansteadium wonders if it might be wise for parents of impressionable children to agree on a line to take against toddlers’ inquiries for a range of questions, since curious (and devious) youngsters will no doubt seek verification from their peers and consistency may bolster parental solidarity. Obvious contenders for agreeing a line on include:
- Are those really Santa’s reindeers?
- Can they really fly?
- Which one exactly is Rudolf, and why isn’t his nose red?
- Are they the same ones they had at Westfield?
Answers welcome below. And please send details of any other fairs etc to firstname.lastname@example.org. And remember, you can always add details of any event in Wanstead to the Wansteadium Calendar.
