Ever wondered how every single Puerto Rican family celebrates Christmas (and styles their hair?) well Ismael has provided the answer, straight from PR:

Having spent an entire month caring for my 7-year-old nephew, I’ve grown as a man, a father, and as a human in general. His insight deeply challenged my views on the world. Here are 17 of his questions that will make you pause and reflect on your beliefs.
1-Is god a boy or a girl?
2-Why can’t all the states of the world (countries) be together in one state (country) without lines and names and they can all just be in one place close to each other so that families could be together?
3-Do girls have wieners?
4-Why can’t little kids drink that fizzy apple drink that you are drinking?
5-Why can’t I be a kid forever even when I’m an adult? So I can play and be able to ride in my baby cart?
6-Why are big men’s wieners bigger than mine?
7-You call THAT a bedtime story?!
8-Can I have two wieners?
9-When I hug you can you feel my wiener in your leg?
10-Doesn’t farts smell like waffles sometimes?
11-When you say you like that train, do you like it like you want to marry it? You can’t marry a train! The babies would come out half train half human!
12- Did I farteded when I was inside my mom’s stomach?
13-Does that make you proud? Re: me scolding him.
14-Can you imagine putting your whole arm inside that lady’s booty?!
15- Can I please taste the lemonade first before I make up my mind if I like it or not and before we pay for it? Can you put it in a cup with a mini straw?
16-Why would I want to be an actor? Actors don’t save people!
17-What is a vagina?
What is with people? They are thirsty. You give them water. They are satiated and now they’re mad you gave them too much water. Three and something years people moaning about Obama not being outwardly supportive of gay marriage, left and right asking, pleading, begging, DEMANDING it. Now he did it and guess what, 2,500 blogs have published pieces of pure unbridled moaning and faux disregard and I-dont-give-a-flying-one attitude about it. The masses are saying “Good for you Obamz. Good for you.”
What is your problem? He did it! He said it! Wasn’t that what you were all asking for? Boy comes out in defense and now y’all hating? All you pseudo intellectuals must know by now that politics is a game of strategy. Black president has a lot on his plate already by bein’ black. He needs to play the game intelligently. Twenty times as clever he needs to be. One false step and he’s out. We all know he is cool. We all know he parties with the Butches and does brunch with RuPaul while playing some Lennon and perhaps puffing on a jay. We all know he didn’t get there through the fast lane with an easy pass thanks to old money and some privilege. He had it hard, and he came out the other way as an O.G. chillin like a villain in the white house (rewind 60 years ago so that you can sense the magnitude of this image.)
So please, understand that Obama has to play this old game of chess even though you want him to play jazz. Understand that before he thinks publicly outside the box, he first needs a box in which to think. Remember when your mom would agree with your dad when he was scolding you in the room but would wink at you without your dad noticing and would let you go to that party behind your dad’s back? That is Obama. He knows the deal left and right and back and forth. Even though he is the President, he is still trying to get past people’s view of him as a black President and not only as a President. Once he is able to be just the President then we might see homie pick his fro out and speak a truth or two. But what boy needs from us now is slack, and for us to drink the water, and be satiated… and to nod and smile… and quit the moaning.
