Out of the mouths of babes

Our friends' children, X(11), Y(8) and Z(4), were doing some colouring and debating why the Christmas colours were red and green. Y thought red was for Santa's suit; X said "Nah, red is for the blood of God, or Jesus, or some random guy." Without looking up, Z chipped in, "Jesus died" - followed by general acclaim from the whole family at her sophisticated level of knowledge. Encouraged, she continued, still colouring seriously. "Yeah, he got stung by a sting ray."
