在減價攤遇上耶穌


在美國過的第一個十二月異常乾燥,臨上機回香港前我跟人看了一場聖誕音樂劇

地點是羅省的水晶大教堂,外牆全玻璃做,劇裡的馬槽動物都是真品,東方三博士騎着大駱駝從觀眾席兩邊進場找耶穌,牧羊人牽着臊臊的羊咩咩叫。十八歲的我看着百人百獸熱鬧大合奏大合唱大結局,樂得呆了。

朋友在旁邊卻搖頭:不對,耶穌生於最髒最卑微的馬槽裡,祂在世的一生由出世起就是謙卑和服侍別人,那裡會是如此金碧輝煌柴娃娃?

在北美過了幾個聖誕節,寧靜的簡單的讓人有空想想聖誕到底為何。自從婚後搬回香港,我是越發討厭聖誕禮物節目燈飾大餐聖誕老人聖誕檔期。今年想替小C找一本聖誕圖畫書,遲了來不及上網訂心儀已久的God Gave Us Christmas,走到Dymocks一看,是完完全全清一色的聖誕老人加雪人,還有一本叫甚麼Wicked Christmas。

最後我在減價攤終於遇上孤伶伶的耶穌,是本打六折的Christmas Story,簡單說出了聖誕故事。不過裡頭的精緻pop-up和模型,就令為娘興奮得也忽然差點忘了耶穌。

三歲的小指頭是真不同了,會小心翼翼的慢慢打開每頁,還要阻止我撕下紙公仔,往日把揭揭書吃下的光境不再。我把故事讀完,小朋友突然問:聖誕書呢?妳剛才說要給我的那本聖誕書呢?

陰功,講晒耶穌都不知我在說聖誕,為娘的真需要被打pet pet。

  1. 本popup書真係幾靚,等犬兒楓楓大少少不再吃書才能買回家給他講故事…..

  2. I think I also need to work hard to make sure 1 1 understands the true meaning of Christmas, to celebrate the birth of a humble saviour, and not the commercial materialism!!

    1 1 will be an understudy of joseph in a short play during tomorrow’s playgroup’s xmas party. Little Joseph (11) and little Mary (his playmate) were very cranky and refused to put on their costumes during rehearsal earlier this week, and apparently very afraid of the baby doll and refused to hold it, so the teacher had to improvise and ask them to present fruits to baby Jesus. Fingers crossed that it will go smoothly!! I’m so thrilled that 1 1 can be involved in Christmas plays at a young age.

    As for reading xmas books, 1 1 is more interested in the sheep, donkeys and birds in the stable than anything else!!!

  3. 我第時會俾個女睇the Nightmare Before Christmas 就算

    我係認真既

    I took 大E & 小J to the library for the storty time this week and the librarian only related the christmas with Santa and nothing about baby Jesus. 大E 只知 baby Jesus not santa, he was a bit lost when he was listening to the story.

    (Hi 小C媽媽, not sure whether you still remember us as we met you@數 碼 港 in oct 2006. 大E had a good time with 小C as they were playing with the ball. Thanks for giving me the link. I only started to look at it recently as I’m on maternity leave. Yes, 大E has a 小J (baby sister). 小J is now 6m. 恭喜 哂 of your 2nd one. Take care:))

  5. 我只在圖書館借了一本 Xmas around the world 比 chilli 睇。

  6. 樣樣有份mama: What a nice surprise to see you here! Congratulations on 小J!Of course I remember you – but did you mean meeting us in oct 2007 rather than 2006? Cuz 小C was only 1 year old back in 2006 and couldn’t even walk! :)  Correct me if i’m wrong – you’re from australia, right?

    阿四, 你好心水清, 我都唔知寫了2006. 家中兩個小跳皮, 有時確實的 透 唔到 氣. Yes it was 2007 and we are from Aus(Syd). 大E樣樣都預mama 份, 小J更加唔使講. cheers
