Was Jesus a Swede?

Christmas-dinner-007Did you hear the funny story about a 5 year old girl who thought Jesus was a Swede?

This cute little girl was helping set the family table one Sunday near Christmas. She stopped for a moment and announced, “Jesus was a Swede.” More than a little surprised, her mum corrected her, “Oh, no, dear, Jesus was Jewish. I'll read it to you from the Bible after lunch.” Pensively, she laid out the silverware. Then her face brightened. “Mummy, I can prove it to you! We sang about it in children’s church this morning.” Triumphantly she sang, "Away in a manger, no crib for a bed, the little Lord Jesus lay down his Swede head."

Ah, the joys of Christmas carol lyrics. They can be confusing some times :)
