New Religions or Logic of a 7 year-old

The other night at the dinner table, Maia was telling a story about someone at school. Mackenna asked, "Is she Christian?" 

Maia said, "I don't know." 

Mackenna said, "Oh, is she Kwanzan?"

Everyone over the age of seven got a good chuckle out of that. When we explained that that is not a religion, she responded, "Well, is she Hanukkan?" We tried to explain that is called "Jewish," but she doesn't believe us. 

I guess it does kind of make logical sense that if people who celebrate Christmas are Christian, then people who celebrate Kwanza are Kwanzan and people who celebrate Hanukkah are Hanukkans!
