'Hey Billy, do you want to come with Sam to look at the pretty lights?' Sam asked her little brother as she unbuckled him from his seat.
'Yeth,' Billy replied, 'Wanna go see lightth with Tham.'
'Here we go,' Sam answered as she picked him up and swung him out of the car.
They walked down the road to the first house that had lights, chatting between the two of them.
'Lightth!!' Billy exclaimed pointing at the house, his eyes big as he tried to take them in.
'Yes, lights,' Sam murmured in awe as she looked at the house and garden before them. This was a Christmas wonderland if ever she had seen one.
'Oh look, we can go and walk around the garden. This notice says we can go inside. Want to?' Sam asked Billy while pointing at a note on the fence.
'Yeth,' he answered absent-mindedly, too intent on the wonderful lights.
They went around the outside of the garden to the entrance, and as they entered it ...
Mary's boy child Jesus Christ was born on Christmas Day.
And man will live for evermore because of Christmas Day.
... Began to play.
