What makes Christmas Special? okay, I mean other than the stuff we learn as kids, celebrating Jesus’ Birthday, the magic of Santa Clause, the Shopping, The Big meals, and getting to stay home from school, and play with your cousins. There is something more than that.
So there we where, the Eve of Christmas trying to wrap up a few Santa gifts, when we remembered that we needed to stop at the local Hardware Supply and get a sheet of Plywood for “Juniors” train set that Santa would be bringing. Well of course, the store was closing in 10 minutes, and we quickly picked out a Nice Sheet of Smooth Plywood. Now a Honda mini-van can hold a lot of stuff, But a 4′ x 8′ sheet of plywood just will not go! When Suddenly, at that very moment from out of nowhere appears a Fella with big ol Truck, and a knowing Smile. “Let me help you folks with that… “. Since I had not had time to think about it, I have no idea what we would have done next had he not showed up. So next time the wife thinks that we can just put the seat down :), I’ll think about this Fella.
In my opinion, it is the Spirit of the Holidays that really brings out this time of Year.
Happy Holidays, Cheers!
