|Not Father Christmas|
|Not a former British Prime Minister|
Now I know she doesn't know who Winston Churchill is, but let's compare & contrast.
Both are older men in pictures (though I'm sure both were young once)
Both have chubby round faces (and bodies)
Both have appeared in episodes of Doctor Who
Churchill is bald & clean shaven, Father Christmas has white hair & a beard
Churchill tends to be shown in a black suit, Father Christmas in a red suit
Churchill is not renowned for his team of flying reindeer
Father Christmas rarely appears on wartime posters
I couldn't help but laugh. And then tried to explain that it wasn't Father Christmas but someone else, without going into too much detail.
Have your little ones had such an odd case of mistaken identity? Or one you'd be prepared to admit to yourself?
