Reign dear

“Ooo yur wearin a new necklace!”
“Not really new, quite old actually.”
“D’ya just wear it at Christmas?”
“Christmas? Not particularly.”
“Is it real valuable?”
“Just costume.”
“Costume?”
“Um…..what is the American word for that? Er….let’s just say it’s fake.”
“Shame. I still like it though. Did Father Christmas give it ya?”
“No, Daddy did.”
“Did he give it t’ya at Christmas?”
“Er…..I can’t really remember. The last decade is a bit of a blur.”
“If it’s fake can I borrow it for the Christmas party?”
“Sure.”
“I like wearing festive things.”
“What do you mean? It’s not particularly festive. In fact I don’t think it’s at all festive now I come to think of it.”
“What’s more festive than a moose with one antler?”

What indeed?

Would it be faux? Maybe? And no matter how much I squint, I can't see a moose. I see the wind dancer which illustrates the A A Milne poem. Am I close?

What, indeed, could be more festive than a moose with one antler? I like that observation very much. Hope your kid wears it to the party with pleasure!
