Last night the Girls' Brigade were doing some work for their project on endangered species. The youngest girls (Explorers, 5-8 years old) were looking at tigers. As they talked about habitat and diet they were told that tigers eat deer. One little five year old was horrified - how will Father Christmas get around if the tigers eat his reindeer. We did explain the reindeer don't live in Asia - and to suppress our laughter. At least she was listening.
Still it made we wonder, if he had the opportuity, would Tigger eat Rudolph? Or is the land of make believe one where already the lion and the lamb lie side by side and a little child shall lead them?
