In a magazine interview Obama and his wife Michelle revealed that one of their steadfast house rules is not giving Christmas or birthday presents to Malia, 10, and Sasha, seven.
The Obama's celebrate the days (apparently) but do not give gifts. The question then is: Do Muslims give birthday presents?
I don't know the answer.
But it was also revealed somewhere by MO that Santa gives the Christmas gifts not the parents although I find it a little beyond believing that a smart 10-year-old almost 11 girl like Malia hasn’t figured that one out yet. As for birthdays they give big birthday parties and the friends get to supply the gifts. I wonder what this year’s July 4th party will be like at the WH.
