He gets it, but does he really get it?

SP is pretty good with the Christmas story. He knows all the answers he should. Including the whole 'animal feed trough as bed' bit. As long as it's in its nice sanitised Christmas story context.

Earlier today, we were reading a farm book together. With a picture of a farmer putting feed in a trough. 

So I asked "would we put a baby to sleep in there?" 

He put on his 'that's ridiculous' face. "No!"

"Even if we cleaned it out?"
"No! That's where they eat from."

"But that's what Mary & Joseph had to do with baby Jesus..."

Suddenly he saw the story in a whole new light.
