My youngest daughter was sat at her grandparents’ kitchen table in England, with a piece of paper and a pen.
The nine-year-old looked up at me and asked, “What should I write on my Santa list?”
“Why don’t you write, ‘Dear Santa, I’ve been a very good girl.’”
She shook her head and said, “I don’t agree. I will write, ‘I’ve been a good girl, without the ‘very.’”
