Hilarious things kids say about X'mas

This is hilarious! A recent survey revealed that one in three young adults had no idea that Jesus was born in Bethlehem. Other religious blank spots included the role of the Archangel Gabriel, with more than a quarter having no idea that Gabriel brought God's message to Mary at her home in Nazareth to say that she would give birth to a son.

So what do Britain's youngsters really know about Christmas? Find out the answers given by four to nine-year-olds at four primary schools in Britain, quoted from the DailyMail.

What gifts did the three wise men bring?
Rashneet, six, from Broad Oak Primary School, Manchester:
"The wise men brought coconut oil which was made of coconut, some sweets and some gold."

Jay, five, from Broomhill Infant School, Bristol:
"The three wise men brought Jesus presents of gold, frankincense, smurr (sic) and silver. But I think he would have preferred wrestling toys."

Daniel, seven, from Stanfield Merchant Taylors' Junior School, Merseyside:
"I know for his birthday he got money and gold from the wise men but I would have given him a Liverpool kit."

William, seven, Merchant Taylors:
"I don't know what presents the wise men brought Jesus but a Lego set would have been better."

Ellie, five, Broomhill Infants:
"The three wise men brought Jesus gold, frankincense and myrrh - no real presents. I feel sorry for him."

What animals were there when baby Jesus was born?
Matthew, six, Merchant Taylors:
"There were sheep, horses and a crocodile outside the stable."

Ruby, six, Broomhill Infants:
"At his birth there were oxens, a donkey, three camels, three birds-all white, and three cats-all black."

Valente, six, Merchant Taylors:
"There were camels, donkeys and cows around the stable and the wise men went to the manger to say hello to Jesus."

Who was the Angel Gabriel?
Erin, six, Broomhill Infants:
"The Angel Gabriel is a big white fairy. He helped Mary and Joseph look after the baby - kind of like a doctor."

Jay, five, Broomhill Infants:
"There was also an angel called Gabriel, whose favourite thing was to fly around all day."

Katherine, nine, from St James' Church of England Primary School, Weybridge, Surrey: "Gabriel was this herald angel. He was a boy but he's played by a girl in Christmas plays."

Who is Jesus?
Jay, five, Broomhill Infants:
"Jesus was a king and he wore a crown even though he was a baby. It was a really small crown."

Molly, six, Broomhill Infants:
"Jesus was a newborn king - but there were a lot of newborn kings so he wasn't the only one."

Zoe, six, Merchant Taylors:
"Jesus is really old and his birthday was on Christmas 2007 years ago."

Sara, seven, St James' Primary:
"Jesus is a mystery man."

Why do we celebrate Christmas?
Ellyshia, nine, St James' Primary:
"I am not really a Christian. I believe in unicorns and pixies."

Ben, seven, Broad Oak:
"We celebrate Christmas because Santa comes and gives us lots and lots of presents."

Where was Jesus born?
Charlotte, six, Merchant Taylors:
"A long way away from Liverpool."

Charlie, four, Broomhill Infants:
"He was born in a stable a long way away from here in another country. Bethlehem - it's in England."

Ellyshia, nine, St James' Primary:
"Jesus was born in a barn, a shed or barn anyway. Or it might have been a stable, one of the three."

What did the wise men follow to find the stable where Jesus was born?
Erin, six, Broomhill Infants: "They followed a star to find Jesus, it's a very special star, but I forgot the rest."

Who are his parents?
Charlie, four, Broomhill Infants:
"Jesus's mummy and daddy are called Jovis and Mary."

Archie, seven, St James' Primary:
"His parents were Mary and Joseph. That's easy because I was Joseph in the play."
